"Helios, god of the sun, runs his chariot on Linux wheels. Or, to report something slightly less silly, Helius, an Orem, Utah-based broadband satellite applications developer, intends to base its new gateway service on Caldera's OpenLinux--less than a month after announcing a line of satellite routers designed with Lineo's help."

"The most recent addition to Helius' line of Internet-via-satellite enhancement products, the Helius Optimized Gateway, is designed to improve Internet services over satellite, including browsing, file transfer protocol (ftp), virtual private network (vpn) links, e-mail and other services. The Gateway is targeted at satellite-based service providers (SSPs) and network operation centers (NOCs). It can be used with any IP-compliant satellite gateway to improve performance, thus reducing satellite bandwidth cost."

"One of the factors in reducing that cost is the use of OpenLinux from Caldera Systems. "The Helius Optimized Gateway and Caldera's OpenLinux provide a very powerful, low-cost solution for Internet access anywhere and anytime with reduced bandwidth and higher performance. This is the kind of news that SSPs and NOCs have been waiting for," said Drew Spencer, Caldera's CTO. Helius is "working to bring true Linux-based solutions to the Internet."
