YAKUM, Israel -- Metalink (Nasdaq: MTLK), a leading provider of high performance DSL silicon chipsets, will demonstrate its revolutionary QAM-based VDSLPlus technology at Networld+Interop Tokyo 2003 in Chiba, Japan (Booth # 4C06), July 2-4, 2003.

Metalink's VDSLPlus technology offers highly integrated solutions for both CO and CPE applications, which utilize a new frequency "band" above the current 12Mhz limit, as defined by the VDSL standard, and provides extremely high data rates over single copper wire.

VDSLPlus enables service providers to offer scalable DSL services ranging from short range applications at data rates up to 150 Megabits per second (Mbps) aggregate, and long reach applications that allow for more than 4 Mbps rates over distances of 4km (13,200 ft) using the same line-card and Customer Premise Equipment (CPE) designs.

The benefits of the QAM VDSLPlus technology include:

  • Delivery of over 150 Mbps aggregated bandwidth over single-pair copper wire -- at more than 300m (1000 feet).

  • Reach of over 4km (13,200 feet) at speeds exceeding 4 Mbps.

  • Compliance with all relevant VDSL standards' requirements including: Band Plan 998, 997, and those defined by the Chinese CTSI as well as any proprietary band plans.

  • Spectral compatibility and co-existence with narrowband and legacy DSL services including POTS, EuroISDN, TCM-ISDN and ADSL.

  • Support for both Ethernet and ATM over VDSL.



"VDSLPlus is designed to meet the Japanese broadband market demand for high-bit rates of 100 Mbps and we are excited to demonstrate our VDSLPlus technology at Networld+Interop Tokyo," said Daniel Manor, Metalink's Vice President of Marketing. "Metalink's QAM VDSLPlus technology allows significant extended reach and speed increases while providing benefits in cost and power consumption."

Metalink's chipsets, with more than forty significant design wins across Asia-Pacific, are available in production volumes. Metalink's VDSLPlus solution is priced at $15 U.S. in volumes of ten thousand.
