(NASDAQ: SILC) today announced that a world leader in the network visibility market has selected Silicom’s standalone 100G Bypass Switch to offer to its cloud and telco customers. The client selected Silicom after a lengthy evaluation process, which demonstrated the superiority of Silicom’s “umbrella offering”, including its technology, customization capabilities and ongoing support, as compared with the competition.

The customer plans to begin offering these customized Bypass Switches to its customers during the first quarter of 2019, and Silicom expects sales to ramp up gradually to approximately $3 million per year.
