KFAR SAVA, Israel -- Silicom Ltd. (NASDAQ & TASE: SILC) today announced that it has secured a Design Win from one of the world's largest telecommunications equipment manufacturers for a variety of its multiport Gigabit Ethernet adapters, including several of its market leading 6-port card models. The customer will use these high-performance products to enhance the connectivity of its new security appliance product line.

The customer's security appliances are high-performance firewall based gateways, filtering all data traffic before allowing it into Enterprise networks. Silicom's multiport adapters will be used to enable the appliances to deliver highest-possible throughput and to give them more connectivity ports per slot, thereby enhancing their flexibility and cost-effectiveness.

"We are excited that our products have been chosen by another telecom giant - in fact, one of the world's top-10 telecommunications equipment manufacturers," said Mr. Shaike Orbach, President and CEO of Silicom. "Our products remain clearly differentiated through their innovative functionality and complex designs, together with their excellent performance record with scores of customers. In addition, our extensive product range and strong R&D capabilities make us a desirable one-stop-shop for the industry's best gateway connectivity solutions.

"We believe this Design Win, into which we have already delivered production products, will lead to additional orders on an ongoing basis. Just as important, it demonstrates market need for our high-performance multiport product lines - especially our 6-port models - and their potential, along with our BYPASS products, as a strong revenue driver in the years ahead."
