KFAR SAVA, Israel, April 29, 2019 /PRNewswire/ -- Silicom Ltd. (NASDAQ: SILC) today announced that an additional product group within one of its Tier-1 service provider customers has decided to replace an edge device currently supplied by another vendor with one of the Silicom uCPE models that it is currently using. The decision was based on the strength of Silicom's underlying technology as implemented in the device, coupled with Silicom's performance as a vendor and the relationship that has developed between Silicom and the customer.
The client is now moving forward with a process expected to lead to General Availability (GA) during Q4 2019. Initial production will begin after the successful conclusion of this process, with first production orders expected in early 2020. In parallel, the customer is planning to add new functionality to the device that will increase the rate of deployment. Once full deployment is reached, the order run-rate is expected to reach more than $10 million per year.
"We are extremely pleased that another group within this Tier 1 service provider has chosen to move one of its non-SD-WAN/NFV services to a Silicom device, replacing its previous solution with the Silicom concept that has been working so well in one of their other services," commented Shaike Orbach, Silicom's President and CEO.
"In massive organizations like this, whose hundreds of departments and product groups are continuously building and upgrading networks, the potential for new opportunities is virtually unlimited. We are ideally positioned to fill their edge device and other needs, with rock-solid technology, a rapid-response out-of-the-box development capability, and enthusiastic 'champions' within the organization. We will continue working to expand the breadth and depth of the relationship, leveraging our current success to achieve more big wins in the future," concluded Mr. Orbach.
