About Metalink, Ltd.
Metalink, Ltd. provides digital subscriber line (DSL) chipsets to manufacturers of telecommunications equipment. The company's DSL chipsets enable the digital transmission of voice, video and data over copper wire communications lines.
The company's chipsets include two individual integrated circuits, or chips, and include an analog front-end (AFE) for line interfacing with analog signals and a digital signal processor (DSP) / framer for signal and data processing of the messages being transmitted.
DSL: A typical DSL chip set consists of an analog front-end (AFE) device and a digital device. The AFE serves as an interface between the analog signals transmitted aloNg the copper wire and the digital device. The AFE performs various analog signal-processing functions, such as converting the analog signals into digital format and vice-versa. The digital device includes multiple functions, including the transceiver (DSP) section implementing the modulation and demodulation of the digital signal, the framer section which serves as an interface between the DSP functional block, and the digital network system.
SDSL: SDSL uses 2BlQ encoding to offer a symmetric link over a single copper wire at maximum symmetric rates of 2.320 megabits per second (Mbps). SDSL is used by competitive local exchange carriers (CLECs) to allow their business customers access to the network, including high-speed access to the Internet and remote local area networks (LANs), integrated with multiple transmissions of voice channels, and video conferencing.
HDSL2 AND HDSL4: HDSL2 improves on the T1 HDSL 2-Pair solution by offering similar performance achieved using a single copper wire pair. This is achieved by using the PAM-16 line code in combination with Trellis coding. This standard is enhanced to support an extended reach 4 wire mode, using the same PAM-16 line code referred to as HDSL4.
G.SHDSL: G.SHDSL improves on the SDSL and HDSL technologies by providing rate adaptive solutions at rates of approximately 2.320 Mbps. G.SHDSL supports various encoding technologies, including the Trellis coded PAM-16.
VDSL: VDSL (very high-speed digital subscriber line) technology defines high transmission rates over a single copper wire pair. This includes symmetric transmission at a rate of approximately 100 Mbps. This unit is connected by copper wire to multiple subscribers located in complexes, such as residential complexes, hotels, and campuses.
Customers and Markets
The companys customers for the DSL products, primarily telecommunications equipment manufacturers, incorporate its chipsets into the products that they sell to telecommunications service providers.

SWOT, which stands for Strengths, Weaknesses, Opportunities and Threats, is an analytical framework that identifies the internal and external factors that are favorable and unfavorable for a company.
Enhanced SWOT Analysis
Enhanced SWOT is a 3×3 grid that arranges strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats into one scheme:
- How to use the strengths to take advantage of the opportunities?
- How to use the strengths to reduce likelihood and impact of the threats?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that obstruct taking advantage of the opportunities?
- How to overcome the weaknesses that can make the threats a reality?
Upon answering these questions a company can develop a project plan to improve its business performance.
PESTEL (also termed as PESTLE) is an ideal tool to strategically analyze what influence different outside factors – political, economic, sociocultural, technological, environmental and legal – exert on a business to later chart its long term targets.
Being part of the external analysis when carrying out a strategic assessment or performing a market study, PESTEL gives an overview of diverse macro-environmental factors that any company should thoughtfully consider. By perceiving these outside environments, businesses can maximally benefit from the opportunities while minimizing the threats to the organization.
Key Factors Examined by PESTEL Analysis:
- Political – What opportunities and pressures are brought by political bodies and what is the degree of public regulations’ impact on the business?
- Economic – What economic policies, trends and structures are expected to affect the organization, what is this influence’s degree?
- Sociological – What cultural and societal aspects will work upon the demand for the business’s products and operations?
- Technological – What impact do the technological aspects, innovations, incentives and barriers have on the organization?
- Environmental – What environmental and ecological facets, both locally and farther afield, are likely to predetermine the business?
- Legal – What laws and legislation will exert influence on the style the business is carried out?
IFE, EFE, IE Matrices
The Internal Factor Evaluation matrix (IFE matrix) is a strategic management tool helping audit or evaluate major weaknesses and strengths in a business’s functional areas. In addition, IFE matrix serves as a basis for identifying and assessing relationships amongst those areas. The IFE matrix is utilised in strategy formulation.
The External Factor Evaluation matrix (EFE matrix) is a tool of strategic management that is typically utilised to assess current market conditions. It is an ideal instrument for visualising and prioritising the threats and opportunities a firm is facing.
The essential difference between the above mentioned matrices lies in the type of factors incorporated in the model; whilst the latter is engaged in internal factors, the former deals exceptionally with external factors – those exposed to social, political, economic, legal, etc. external forces.
Being a continuation of the EFE matrix and IFE matrix models, the Internal External matrix (IE matrix) rests upon an investigation of external and internal business factors integrated into one suggestive model.
Porter Five Forces Analysis
The Porter’s five forces analysis studies the industry of operation and helps the company find new sources of competitive advantage. The analysis surveys an industry through five major questions:
- What composes a threat of substitute products and services?
- Is there a threat of new competitors entering the market?
- What is the intensity of competitive rivalry?
- How big is the bargaining power of buyers?
- How significant is the bargaining power of suppliers?
VRIO stands for Value, Rarity, Imitability, Organization. This analysis helps to evaluate all company’s resources and capabilities and bring them together into one aggregate table that includes:
- Tangible resources
- Intangible resources
- Innovation and Creativity
- Organizational capabilities
The result of the analysis gives a clear picture of company’s competitive and economic implications, answering the questions if the resources mentioned above are:
- Costly to imitate?
- Organized properly?
