Coriant is a telecommunications firm under the telecom industry. It is held independently and privately. The independence arose from its connection with Nokia Siemens Networks both of which belonged to the mother company called Marlin Equity Partners. It uses borrowed technology from Tellabs, Sycamore Networks and also from Siemens Optical Networks. There has been a lot of merging going on between Coriant and other firms including the aforementioned; Tellabs, Sycamore Networks and with Siemens Optical Networks from which it borrows technology as mentioned earlier on.
Their products include Optical LAN and broadband Access, Packet Optical Transport solutions, Cross Conect and TDM Solutions, Edge Routing Solutions, MSPP Solutions, Integrated Optical Planning Solutions, Intelligent Network Management among many other services that they offer. The firm is selling not only hardware but also software for optical transmissions in the voice, data and mobile networks.

Shaygan Kheradpir is the new Chairman and Chief Executive Officer at Coriant, taking over from Pat Dipietro who became vice chairman taking over the role as Operating Partner at Marlin Equity Partners; the independent equity firm that gave birth to Coriant. Shaygan Kheradpir was formally chief Executive Officer of Jupiter Networks Inc. Prior to joining Coriant as now new boss, he was working closely with the senior management team of the same company in the docket of Operating Executive to Marlin Equity Partners. He is a man of reputation, which precedes his name as well. He has had much recognition in the technology, financial services and the telecom world industries. Kheradpir’s strategic insights and proper guidance on focused operational executions are all phenomenon, something that I would say is rather plausible- worthy of approval and acceptance.
Kheradpir has plenty of industry experience, having worked at GTE, at Verizon Communications and as the chief operations and technology officer at Barclays bank. He is a visionary leader, a sucker for opportunities, an addict addicted to bringing change at work place, for the betterment of not only the firm but also the society, the whole world for that matter. Never letting opportunities pass, understanding the powers of many; that’s what he is. He is a well-rounded man who is put together and dynamic.
