Top-Tier Networking Giant to Standardize on Silicom's SETAC Modules for Its Next-Generation Appliances

- Together with Currently-Used SETAC Kits, the Potential of Sales to This Customer May Now Reach Several Million Dollars Per Year -

KFAR SAVA, Israel--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Silicom Ltd. (Nasdaq: SILC) (TASE:SILC) today announced that one of the world's largest networking companies, which for the past 18 months has been using Silicom's SETAC SErver To Appliance Converter kits in several network appliance product lines, has now also standardized on Silicom's SETAC modules for its next-generation appliances. The Company expects this decision to boost this customer's purchases of SETAC products to up to several million dollars per year.

"We are proud that this premier networking leader views Silicom products as strategic enablers, as evidenced by its design of more and more Silicom solutions into its growing portfolio of advanced network appliances," commented Shaike Orbach, Silicom's President and CEO. "When they became one of our first volume users of SETAC kits, we indicated that they could become volume users also of our SETAC modules, and this has now become the case. We fully expect that their use of our solutions will further increase in the years to come, representing a reliable and continuously growing revenue driver for our Company."

Mr. Orbach added, "The fact that this customer's usage of SETAC products has moved into the use of SETAC Modules in line with our predictions 18 months ago - together with the steady growth in the number of our SETAC wins to other customers - confirms our 'read' of the market and our understanding of its true needs. This insight, more than any other advantage, continues to be the key to our success, assuring that we apply our considerable technology and agility assets to the most vexing pain points of some of the industry's largest players. We are confident that this ability will enable us to continue accelerating our growth in the future."
