ECI TELECOM SELECTS METALINK'S G.SHDSL TECHNOLOGY FOR NEXT GENERATION PRODUCTS.

ECI Telecom Ltd. (Nasdaq/NM:ECIL) a leading provider of digital subscriber line (DSL) solutions for business and residential users, has selected the Hydra G.SHDSL chip set from Metalink Ltd. (Nasdaq:MTLK), a fabless semiconductor company and leading provider of high-performance, symmetric digital subscriber line (DSL) chip sets. Metalink was first to market with a high-density (octal), central office-class G.SHDSL solution, and as a development partner, ECI Telecom plans to bring G.SHDSL solutions to worldwide ILEC markets speedily.

ECI Telecom selected Hydra because it offers significantly lower power consumption, higher density and higher performance than competing G.SHDSL chip sets. Hydra's 8-port design is ideal for high density, low power symmetric DSL line card design and supports speeds of up to 2.3 Mbps at more than 14,000 feet.

ECI Telecom's Hi-FOCuS xDSL broadband access portfolio incorporating innovative FractalLink architecture is designed to enable coexistence of different DSL technologies (e.g. ADSL, ADSL lite, SDSL, and VDSL) within a single platform. This ability broadens the variety of services that can be provided through the system. Its ATM over copper architecture enables the differentiation of service packages by supporting four Quality of Service (QoS) classes. The system additionally features ATM-OAM (Operation, Administration and Maintenance) capabilities.

ECI Telecom's Hi-FOCuS broadband access platform is in large deployment with leading European and Asian ILECs and will deliver broadband Internet, video, multimedia and other services to business and residential subscribers.

According to Cahners In-Stat, the worldwide demand for business-focussed symmetric DSL will grow at a combined annual growth rate of over 76% from 995.5 thousand subscribers added in 2000, to 9,654 million added in 2004.

Deployment of G.SHDSL-based platforms is expected to help ECI Telecom maintain its leadership in business-class, symmetric DSL access solutions to be provided by worldwide ILECs.

G.SHDSL technology is a multi-rate version of HDSL2 that operates over a copper infrastructure, employing either a single or double copper pair, depending on the amount of bandwidth desired. This revolutionary technology enables data, voice and video to be transmitted over distances never before attainable by other flavors of DSL technology. G.SHDSL delivers up to 2.3 Mbps to distances as far as 14,000 feet away. Additionally, G.SHDSL can work alongside other DSL flavors, without causing interference.
