As with Sub Sea and long haul national telecommunications, it is important to maintain high quality fast optical fibre communications into metropolitan area networks. Stellium’s own 40 KMs metropolitan area fibre network (MAN) is an OPEN and CARRIER NEUTRAL system. It is designed to enable resilient, redundant, low latency and high capacity data exchange.

The Stellium MAN achieves several outcomes including enhancing Newcastle City high speed network, enabling LFFN, facilitating connectivity at long haul to Tier 1 Internet locations such as London, enabling 5G services and driving the North East Combined Authority objectives of the Digital Economy.
