Silicom Secures Design Win & $2M+ Initial Order for New Edge Product


Silicom’s new cost-performance optimized Edge platform is the 1st-to-market based on Intel’s new CPU


KFAR SAVA, Israel – November 7, 2022 – Silicom Ltd. (NASDAQ: SILC), a leading provider of networking and data infrastructure solutions, today announced that it has secured a new Design Win and initial $2+ million order from an existing customer for its innovative new Edge product: a powerful, cost-effective platform based on Intel’s new CPU. Per the customer request, deliveries of this initial order are planned to begin during the second quarter of 2023.

As a platform that combines exceptional computing power and flexibility at a very attractive cost, the Silicom platform is ideal for supporting the full range of Edge Networking use cases, from SD-WAN and SASE to Enhanced Internet, dedicated telco routers and more.

The reference design for the new Intel CPU was developed by Silicom during the past year, and Silicom is the first-to-market with a platform based on it.

“This important Design Win and order demonstrate, once again, the validation of our strategic decision to position Silicom as the industry’s go-to provider of high-performance Edge platforms, which has now developed into such a strong growth driver for Silicom,” commented Liron Eizenman, Silicom’s CEO. “Our positioning consists of a number of layers. First, the privileged relationship that we have built with Intel over many years continues to give us a lead in identifying market needs, together with deep insight into the capabilities of their new technologies. For example, the fact that Intel trusted us – once again – to develop the reference design for their new CPU meant that we were the first to bring to market an Edge product with an optimal combination of features, functionality and cost based on that CPU.”

Mr. Eizenman continued, “Then, realizing that a wide variety of markets – telcos, service providers, Enterprises and cloud players – have similar requirements when it comes to designing their next-generation Universal CPE (uCPE), telco-dedicated routers, Secure Access Services Edge (SASE) networks and Enhanced Internet solutions, we moved quickly, initiating discussions about our Edge platforms with additional potential customers, including existing clients for other Silicom products and with new logos. All of them seek ever-higher compute capabilities, efficient and flexible networking and connectivity options, and optimized heat dissipation and power consumption, coupled with the best cost/performance ratio possible, easy installation and minimum maintenance. By packaging all of these functionalities with rapid customization, onboarding and ramp-up capabilities, we have succeeded in positioning ourselves as the industry’s Edge platform provider of choice.”

Mr. Eizenman concluded, “We therefore believe that we are poised to benefit strongly as market uptake of the Edge Platform concept continues to spread and grow. We will benefit from our reputation as a ‘can-do’ platform creator with the ability to get the best out of Intel chips, and from the close and growing relationships we have built with so many customers and potential customers. We are pleased to kick-off the sales of this new product family with such a sizeable first order, and believe that our Edge family offerings will continue to be a significant growth driver for Silicom.”
