KFAR SAVA, Israel — October 28, 2019, – Silicom Ltd. (NASDAQ: SILC) today announced that one of its long-term strategic customers, a leader in the SD-WAN space, has decided to standardize on Silicom’s newest uCPE solutions for use in its next generation portfolio of SD-WAN devices.

And third, it underscores our customer’s appreciation for the high-level co-operation and superb support that has characterized our relationship over the years.”
