Metalink Ltd. (Nasdaq: MTLK;TASE: MTLK) and Intel Corp. (Nasdaq:INTC) have jointly unveiled a reference design for residential gateways, which integrates Intel's IXP4XX network processor family, based on XScale technology, with Metalink's 802.11n-compliant WLANPlus chipset.
The joint residential gateways design offers simultaneous support for both the 2.4GHz and 5GHz frequency bands, enabling it to transmit High-Definition (HD) multimedia content over the 5GHz band while concurrently supporting data networking and other legacy applications over the 2.4GHz band .

Metalink develops high-performance wireless and wireline broadband communication silicon solutions. The company recently announced its first order for its WANPlus chipset, after it won Wi-Fi Alliance Certification earlier this month, which means that the chipset is fully compliant with IEEE 802.11n draft 2.0 specifications.

Metalink VP marketing Barry Volinskey said, "We are very pleased to join forces with this industry leader, and excited by the power and quality of the platform that we are developing together. We are confident that this unique platform will answer the true needs of the home entertainment market. "
