Shaygan Kheradpir and Coriant: The Perfect Pairing of Telecom Expertise


The telecommunication company Coriant is a well-known innovator of networking solutions. Their business is designed to make it easier for other businesses to thrive in the modern world by making telecom systems more affordable, faster and more reliable. This company is the result of the merging of Nokia Siemens Networks, Optical Networks, Tellabs, and Sycamore Networks. Much more than the name of the business has changed. Today the company is thriving thanks to the new talent they have leading the company from the top.


Shaygan Kheradpir is currently heading Coriant as their CEO. London-born Kheradpir holds a bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degree in electrical engineering from Cornell University. He began his career in 1987, working for GTE Laboratories. He expanded his resume more with positions at Barclays, Verizon and most recently, Juniper. He was consistently promoted while at each of these companies and received much praise for his efforts in technological developments. Many of these companies most innovative software programs and technological developments were in part due to the imagination and talent of Kheradpir.


In 2013, Kheradpir took the reins at Coriant and is continuing to look for ways to keep the company ahead of the telecom crowd. Much of the interest in this business is its ability to stay ahead of the competition by providing more affordable and effective solutions for voice, data and mobile networks. The company believes that the 28 years of experience that Kheradpir brings with him as a technology leader will benefit the company immensely. To date, that seems to have been true as Coriant is already considered to be a global leader in the telecom industry.
