Silicom Ltd. (NASDAQ:SILC) (TASE:SILC) today announced that it has been awarded two Design Wins from a new customer in the rapidly growing Traffic Management and Policy Enforcement Industry. The Design Wins are for a specialized internal BYPASS solution, a product that will replace another solution currently provided by one of Silicom’s competitors, and for Silicom’s unique external Intelligent BYPASS Switch (IBS).
Silicom expects the revenues from these Design Wins to reach approximately $1 million per year. In addition, the customer is currently discussing the use of another, higher-end solution that could, if adopted, increase its business with the Company significantly to a level of several million dollars per year.
“We are very pleased to have achieved these additional Design Wins within the traffic management and policy enforcement industry, a market segment that continues to experience exponential growth,” commented Shaike Orbach, Silicom’s President and CEO. “Our success with this customer demonstrates that all our product lines are relevant in contributing to our growth. It also demonstrates the virtually bottomless nature of our markets – especially their ability to continuously produce an ever-growing roster of significant new customers, each of which offers an immediate new horizon of additional sales opportunities that continues to grow over time.”
BYPASS solutions are used to assure the continued flow of network traffic if its in-line appliances should experienced failure, and Silicom’s BYPASS solutions help customers achieve the highest performance possible of these mission critical applications. In addition, Silicom’s unique Intelligent Bypass switch (IBS) is able to independently sense a failure and to initiate the Bypass process, thereby facilitating an exceedingly simple integration of an external BYPASS solution into the network.## About Silicom Silicom Ltd. is an industry-leading provider of high-performance networking and data infrastructure solutions.
