Last-mile dark-fibre infrastructure that provides unrestricted connectivity between Tachyon aggregation nodes and customer sites.

Helios is a key component of our last-mile dark-fibre network. Together with Tachyon nodes and Peregrine or Calypte links, it lets you connect directly to your customers premises using the most reliable and unimpeded communications technology available today.


Helios links connect your customer sites to our Tachyon nodes, enabling you to aggregate traffic onto your core network. Helios infrastructure is normally deployed in a star topology.
