Ethernity Networks Signs Second Design Contract with North American Tier-1 OEM
LOD, Israel – April 30, 2020 – Ethernity Networks (AIM: ENET.L), a leading supplier of data processing offload solutions on programmable hardware for functional acceleration of telco/cloud networks, announced today that it has signed a second design win contract for its ENET Flow Processor technology with an existing North American tier-1 telecommunications OEM customer.
Ethernity will supply its ENET Switch and Traffic Manager firmware to support performance of 200 Gbps on the customer’s new xPON optical light termination (OLT) device.
The company signed its first licensing deal with the customer in 2018, and following successful field deployment of that platform, the customer has now progressed to a next-generation product based on Ethernity’s advanced technology. The ENET solution will be customized to fit the customer’s new OLT platform, which, in addition to Ethernity’s ENET Flow Processor core functionality (including hierarchical traffic management, switching, and access control list), will also include Ethernity’s new 400 Gbps fabric technology to allow cascading of multiple chasses to form a virtual chassis cluster.
The customer intends to deploy its new OLT platform in H2/2021. Given the popularity of the platform and the size of the OEM, the new product is anticipated to generate significant ongoing royalty streams for Ethernity, added to significant short-term revenue as detailed in the newly signed contract.
“We are pleased to have received this new platform design win order, and we look forward to developing additional new platforms for this customer’s appliances in other vertical markets,” said Ethernity CEO David Levi. “This contract confirms that our extensive networking functionality offers tremendous value to the market and is an example of how we can build strong partnerships with industry leaders.”
