Silicom Announces Major New Design Win:
Networking Equipment Giant Chooses Silicom’s SD-WAN Smart Platform



KFAR SAVA, Israel – October 12, 2021, – Silicom Ltd. (NASDAQ: SILC), a leading provider of networking and data infrastructure solutions, today announced that one of the world’s largest networking equipment providers has selected Silicom’s SD-WAN Smart Platform for its advanced next-generation branded solution. To date, the client has already placed initial significant purchase orders, with plans to begin ramping quantities in 2022 to a level that will make it one of Silicom’s largest customers.

The design win came after several of the client’s end-users selected and successfully deployed Silicom solutions as the hardware platform for decoupled/disaggregated networks based on the client’s software solution. After seeing how well the Silicom offerings performed and evaluating their unique features, the client made the strategic decision to adopt customized models under its own brand name to use in its newest end-to-end SD-WAN offerings.

“This is a major, major win for Silicom that we believe will become a strong growth driver following the initial ramp up period,” commented Shaike Orbach, Silicom’s CEO. “Our growth in the SD-WAN space, which began with branded solutions and then moved to the decoupled and disaggregated market, has now come full circle, with our leadership in that space leading this giant to select our solutions for its branded networks.”
Mr. Orbach continued, “In fact, as the SD-WAN market continues to grow and develop, we find ourselves securing more and more design wins, confirming the value that SD-WAN networks of all architectures – traditional as well as decoupled/disaggregated – gain from the flexibility, control and networking power we provide. As this space moves into the mainstream, we expect many of these design wins to ramp up during 2022 and beyond.”
