Coriant has operations and customers throughout the world across 100 countries. The company builds custom networks and other computing infrastructures that client companies build their information processing services upon. These days Coriant has a new CEO and a new direction in upgrades. The man moving the action forward is new CEO Shaygan Kheradpir. The goal is to provide their clients with new technologies that make business processing speed significantly faster while also making it less interruptible by systems down time.
Kheradpir will address issues with clients lagging behind with older, slower, and less reliable systems technology. These clients include government agencies, industrial manufacturers, and all sorts of commerce. His plan is to upgrade all of their networks and computing services to cloud technology and Packet-Optical Transport Systems (POTS). Not only does POTS provide much higher speeds of data transfer, they are also very fault-tolerant. So, recovery from failures can be effected while normal operations are still maintained. To get things going he has laid out goals with measurable milestones.
Coriant has supplied systems integration with products from major suppliers for over 35 years. Some of the suppliers they use include Tellabs, Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN), and Sycamore Networks corporation. Their clients include clouds, data centers, fixed-line providers, and content producers. Many of the leading Communications Service Providers (CSPs) rely on Coriant services. Not only will these new upgrades bring solutions with less headaches, they will also reduce operating costs.
As well as CEO, Shaygan Kheradpir is also Coriant’s board Chairman. The company benefits from his 28 years in the industry, where he has gained valuable insight into networking, telecoms, and finance. His executive position while managing the $20 million FiOS nation-wide implementation of fiber for Verizon is one of his major accomplishments. At GTE he was also in an executive role.
Kheradpir has a Ph.D from Cornell University, where he also earned his Masters. He has a BS in engineering and at that time was part of the advisory board at Cornell’s Engineering Council.
