Coriant is a tech company that, while new, has been in existent for years now. It first started up as a sector within Nokia Siemens. Inside of the company, the division helped produce fiberoptic cables and other hardware used to boost network connections and to improve the way large businesses and companies interact with one another through the sharing of data. While the company has moved on its own, it still focuses on producing the same kind of material, only now as an independent company under the watchful eye of Shaygan Kheradpir.
When Coriant first started to produce fiberoptic cables and similar networking equipment, this sort of technology had just started. It did prove to be new and helpful with the continual expansion of the tech industry. However, when Nokia Siemens was purchased out and a new management team moved in, the Coriant division spun off in order to create its own entity. Now, as an independent company, the new board of directors still wanted to focus on the creation of fiberoptic networking hardware and software. With this being said though, the company did realize he needed to bring in someone with experience to run the company. Otherwise, without the aid of a new professional who had knowledge on fiberoptic equipment and the ability to manage other businesses, it might struggle to find its way in the new world. With the help of Shaygan Kheradpir, the company found the individual they were looking for.
Shaygan Kheradpir does have experience in the world of fiberoptic technology. When he worked as a department head for Verizon, he helped produce not only the DVR service the company new utilizes, but he also helped create the fiber optics technology for the company’s FiOS Internet and cable service. All of this has prove to be especially helpful and it made him a desirable candidate for the job. On top of being a CEO for Juniper Networks, he served on the board of directors for several other companies as well. Now, he has become the head of Coriant and he aims to do everything he can.
