Coriant is an independent entity that was formed in 2013. Coriant engages in the development of dynamic and innovative solutions to networking problems. The history of the firm dates back to the 1990s when the Siemens Transmission Technology came to the fore. Over the years, technology transitioned from Plesiochronous Digital Hierarchy to Synchronous Digital Hierarchy. Between the late 90s and the early 2000s, the DWDM was developed to enhance the transmission capacity.
The technology is derived from Siemens Optical Networks, Sycamore Networks and Tellabs. An official launch of the company was done in March 2013. In same year, May 6, the firm broke off from Nokia Siemens Network through the ownership of Marlin Equity Partners.
At the time, there was an expected merge with Sycamore, a firm that had also been purchased by Marlin Equity in 2013. The firm whose head quarters are in Chelmsford, Massachusetts, was set to operate as Coriant America Inc. Recently, Marlin Equity announced plans to merge Coriant and Tellabs, a company based in Naperville, Illinois. Tellabs was acquired in December 2013. The merger saw Coriant retain its name.
Coriant engages in the business of selling software and hardware for optical transmissions. These software and hardware are sold to mobile, voice and data networks. The company’s products include optical multiplexing, multi service provisioning and cross connection of optical paths. Coriant also develops software products that aid in network planning and network management. Coriant’s current competitors include Cisco, Alcatel-Lucent, Infinera and Ciena. The optical revenue of Coriant has been gradually rising.
