ADC SELECTS METALINK CHIPSET FOR HDSLX PLATFORMS.

ADC (Nasdaq:ADCT) Minneapolis, has announced it will use chipsets developed by Metalink (Nasdaq:MTLK) in its Soneplex/HiGain HDSL2 and HDSL4 products. The chipset provides significantly lower power consumption and improved thermal performance, helping telecommunications service providers efficiently and cost effectively deploy high-speed data services throughout North America. HDSLx technology uses copper infrastructure to deliver T1 services, primarily to small- and medium-sized businesses.

Currently all five Regional Bell Operating Companies (RBOC) have ADC HDSLx offerings deployed in their networks. Several of these service providers are now evaluating ADC's products using the new Metalink chipset. With the new chipset, carriers can obtain a feature-rich and highly reliable HDSLx solution for their networks.

"We selected Metalink for its innovative leadership and expertise in DSL technologies," said Mike Pratt, president of the Wireline Systems Business Unit at ADC. "After evaluating several options, including in-house development, we determined that Metalink would give us the most technically innovative solution, with significant product feature and cost advantages. Working with Metalink, ADC can tap a level of experience and best-of-class capabilities that go beyond HDSLx. Metalink's demonstrated professionalism and customer support has been outstanding as well."

ADC offers a complete line of HDSL, HDSL2 and HDSL4 platforms, including the industry's first HDSL4 products independently certified to be compliant with the HDSL4 standard. Soneplex/HiGain HDSL4 products include line units, repeaters and enclosures and comes in a full range of form factors, including industry-standard 220 and 3190, Lucent DDM Plus, and Soneplex.

"Metalink has developed technology and products for telecommunications and networking equipment makers for more than a decade," said Tzvika Shukhman, CEO at Metalink. "We have deployed more than six million chipsets in various products, so our expertise and capabilities in making first-in-world, high quality products is proven. We are eager to help ADC enhance existing networks and ultimately help service providers deliver highly reliable and efficient services."

Metalink's innovations include the world's first octal SHDSL solution, complete system on chip for SHDSL/HDSL2/HDSL4 T1/E1 transport applications and three generations of "industry's firsts" standard compliant VDSL solutions. The company is also recognized in both the broadband access markets, and within ETSI, ANSI, ITU, FS-VDSL, and IEEE standards bodies, governing DSL implementation and deployment worldwide.

ADC offers a comprehensive line of last mile DSL solutions, including industry-leading T1 and E1 transport systems, multi-service access platforms, high-performance customer premise equipment, OSS software, and integration services.
