Leading Application Delivery Provider to Migrate Appliances to Use Silicom Cards
- Sales Potential After Ramp-Up: ~$1.5M/Year –
KFAR SAVA, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Silicom Ltd. (NASDAQ:SILC) (TASE:SILC) today announced that one of its Application Delivery customers has decided to replace the networking cards it currently uses in approximately 10 appliances with a variety of advanced Silicom networking cards. In addition, the customer is considering replacing its current SSL acceleration solution with Silicom’s new Coleto Creek-based card.
“We are delighted that this prestigious Application Delivery provider – a customer which in the past was one of our smaller clients – has decided to step up our partnership, standardizing on Silicom cards for its appliance product families”
To date, the customer has given Silicom Design Wins for cards used in two appliances and initiated a “rolling” Design Win process for the remaining appliances. In addition, the customer has recently placed its first orders for the Design Wins already secured. Once all Design Wins are in place and the ramp-up periods are complete, the customer is expected to place ongoing orders totaling approximately $1.5 million per year.
“We are delighted that this prestigious Application Delivery provider – a customer which in the past was one of our smaller clients – has decided to step up our partnership, standardizing on Silicom cards for its appliance product families,” commented Mr. Shaike Orbach, Silicom’s President and CEO. “This demonstrates the latent potential of our large customer base, which numbers more than 100 OEMs in many of the communications market’s hottest sectors.
“Again and again, we see that the Silicom value proposition, including top-tier technology, rapid customization, a ‘partnership’ mentality and close support, beats out the competition, leading our customers to increase their business with us over time. As such, we continue to view our traditional product lines and our impressive customer base as strong revenue drivers with the power to feed continuous growth for Silicom over the long term.”
