Metalink Ltd has introduced its next-generation, broadband VDSLPlus chipsets for Access Switch & DSLAM and CPE applications that are comprised of Geryon II, a Quad VDSL port (4-and 5-band) CO transceiver; Xanthus III+, an enhanced high-bit-rate 5-band transceiver; and Vela, an integrated, programmable, AFE-supporting 4 and 5-band.

Denser and consuming less power, the VDSLPlus utilizes an additional 5th band in the unused spectrum between 12MHz to 30MHz. Service providers deploying VDSLPlus can offer scalable DSL services ranging from short-range applications, at data rates of up to 200Mbps, to long-reach applications that allow for data delivery at distances of 4 km using the same line card and Customer Premise Equipment.

The product is fully spectral compatible with all VDSL standards' band plans (998, 997, and those defined by the Chinese CTSI), and are compliant with existing, 4-band, VDSL standards and are fully backwards compatible to the company's VDSL products. The devices include an Ethernet interface, allowing a glueless connection to off-the-shelf Ethernet switching component, and also supports ATM interfaces over VDSL. The device is priced at $12.50.
