Comments of Management
Shaike Orbach, Silicom's President and CEO, commented, "We are very pleased to report another quarter of strong growth in both revenues and profits, demonstrating the importance of our performance-boosting smart platforms and smart cards for the market's strategic shift to the cloud and adoption of open/disaggregated fixed and mobile network infrastructures. Our growth is being driven by increased traction with all types of SD-WAN and NFV players, who have a strong need for our smart platforms, as well as by 4G/5G O-RAN players, who need our acceleration and offloading solutions to overcome the performance challenges of their decoupled/disaggregated infrastructures."
Mr. Orbach continued, "For example, during the second quarter we announced that Telefonica, one of the world's leading telcos, selected our SD-Branch Smart Platform as a decoupled/disaggregated SD-WAN solution for the SME segment, with at-scale deployments expected to begin already in 2022. In parallel, we closed a major 5G design win with a global 5G equipment vendor - our third 5G win in a single six-month period - who chose our Smart 5G acceleration card for its Distributed Unit (DU) solutions, cementing our leadership of the 5G DU-performance accelerator niche. These and other wins are building interest in our offerings to an even higher level, giving us a healthy pipeline of near-term and long-term opportunities."
Mr. Orbach concluded, "While the industry-wide component shortage crisis continues to pose a significant threat, given the fundamental strength of our market drivers, the recognized leadership of our products, our strong base of design wins and our significant pipeline of opportunities, we believe we will continue - with careful planning - to proceed on-track in accordance with our projections for accelerated growth."
