Tier-1 European Telco Selects Silicom Edge Networking Solution As Part of Vast New SD-WAN Deployment


KFAR SAVA, Israel — February 9, 2022, – Silicom Ltd. (NASDAQ: SILC), a leading provider of networking and data infrastructure solutions, today announced that a Tier-1 European telco, a new customer for Silicom, has selected a customized version of a Silicom Edge Networking platform to deploy in the next-generation SD-WAN networks that it will begin rolling out during the second half of 2022.

The Design Win was secured in partnership with a leading provider of SD-WAN software, which selected the Silicom hardware as the highest-performance complement for its next-generation offerings.
To date, the customer has placed a $1 million purchase order for equipment planned to be delivered during late 2022 and early 2023, and forecasts a run rate of approximately $5 million per year once manufacturing and deployment become stable. With the initial purchase order in hand, the Silicom team is working to address the customization process’s final challenges.

“We are excited to add another Tier-1 player to our growing list of telco clients, confirming once again the strong positioning we have achieved in the SD-WAN ecosystem and the segment’s power to drive our future growth,” commented Shaike Orbach, Silicom’s CEO. “The fact that a telco of this stature selected our platform speaks volumes about the advantages of our edge network solutions, and emphasizes the importance of the strong cooperation and partnerships we have established with many SD-WAN software vendors in this era of hardware and software decoupling.”

Mr. Orbach continued, “As such, we are enthusiastic about our cooperation with this leading SD-WAN software provider, with whom we have teamed to provide the optimal solution for the carrier’s challenges. We believe our joint solution, which combines the highest-quality, maximum flexibility, most reasonable-cost hardware platform with the many advantages of our partner’s software solution, optimally addresses the challenges faced by telcos and SD-WAN service providers and will further increase our success in this market.
