Tech/Engineering - Transport / Transportation / Shipping / railway cabling system
French term or phrase: pylônes
Apologies if this is shockingly easy to those of you who specialise in this area, but I am not sure of which of the many definitions for "pylônes" to use here.

This is from a list of investment projects from a cable manufacturer:

XXX est un câble de données duplex cuivre/fibre servant à automatiser les lignes régionales non électrifiées. Il est posé le long des voies plutôt que sur des pylônes.

Thank you in advance for your help!!
