Calypte is a cost-effective solution that gives you rate-monitored connectivity between Tachyon nodes or between Tachyon nodes and your core network sites.

If you don’t need unlimited speed all the time, Calypte lets you choose a burstable data rate while still giving you the benefit of dark fibre. There is no hard limit on the bandwidth – your traffic can exceed the chosen data rate for short periods – and you can permanently upgrade or downgrade your bandwidth. Together with Tachyon, Peregrine, and Helios, it enables you to design and build your network in the most cost-effective way.


With Calypte, you can connect your core sites to our Tachyon aggregation nodes, giving you predictable performance to and from your core network. You can also connect between two of our Tachyon nodes in cases where you don’t need unlimited dark-fibre capacity. Calypte Metro provides cost-effective connectivity within metro areas, while Calypte Long Haul specifically caters for backhaul and long-haul connectivity.
