Home | Business | Coriant Has A New CEO and New Directions

Coriant is in the process of upgrading their technology offerings and in their management team. Shaygan Kheradpir has been brought on as the new CEO of Coriant. These changes are actually quite major and will result in a new age of very advanced hardware and software improvements. Kheradpir has already set some new goals for the company. One of his first moves is to bring all their client companies up to speed with the new very high speed and multiply-redundant Packet-Optical Transport Systems (POTS).

Operating in over 100 countries, providing the foundational network backbone for a great many technology companies, Coriant is more active than ever before. Their services business alone has brought in many billions in revenues. With their new POTS systems, companies will be able to offer significantly better ‘up time’ and much higher data throughput rates. Shaygan Kheradpir plans to continue building the business which supplies the best networking integration services to commerce, industry, and government. All of these types of clients will be upgraded and be offered much more enhanced services.

Coriant has supplied these services for 35 years, catering to many different sectors of business and industry, including web content providers, cloud systems, data center providers, and fixed-line networking. Most of the top Communications Service Providers (CSPs) require Coriant’s services. The new upgrades will bring dramatic savings in overhead by applying new cloud computing and less complicated network solutions.

Some of the many brands Coriant supports in their work are optical networks produced by Nokia Siemens Networks (NSN), Tellabs, and Sycamore Networks. Mobile systems and enlarged and more secure clouds are two of CEO Kheradpir’s near-term updating goals. Next on the agenda will be better support for video streaming.

Kheradpir graduated from Cornell University, earning an engineering degree. While there he also served on the school’s Engineering Council as part of the advisory board. He was also on the National Institute of Standards & Technology’s board of Directors.

He is not only the new CEO at Coriant, but also the Chairman of the Board. He brings 28 years of telecom, computer networking, finance, and telecom experience to the table. At Verizon he was the manager of their FiOS program to connect all of the United States.
