Relay Communications Beacon
From Warhammer 40k - Lexicanum
Relay Communications Beacon, known as Tal'hyen in the Tau Language, are beacons of the Tau Empire used to strengthen communications networks between Septs and newly established territories. The Tau can only travel so far before their signals fade, so chains of Relay Communications Beacons placed across space are invaluable to effectively pass information across the empire. While they are effective means of passing information, each holo-vid can still take months to cross interstellar distances.
