Coriant that mainly deals with network connections and transportation was launched as an independent company under the name Coriant. This was back in 2013 and up to date the company stands out as one of the leading companies offering networking solutions. Coriant Company has also managed to attract a vast line of trustworthy customers and clients who have managed to create large end-user revenue.

Coriant bases its origin from the merge between Nokia Siemens optical networks, Tellabs and Sycamore Networks. Some of the loyal customers who have contributed to the building of Coriant include cloud builders, content providers, financial institutions, large enterprises and government agencies. Helping many clients in resource utilization, the company sells hardware and software too that assist greatly in the optical transmission. This holds the backbone network of mobile, voice and data networks.
