In a fast paced world that revolve around the Internet and its ability to deliver information at high speeds, there are those who are able to network, and those who think they know how to network. Networking is something that is broadly defined, yet in the business world, narrows down to one of two concentrations- business to business connections and personal connections. Not many can say they are able to do both in the business world, but Coriant is different.
The company started its roots in Siemens in the 1990s by working with different levels of technology. Soon, in the early 2000s, a higher transmission capacity emerged named the optical transport network, and they soon were known as a company that had high standards for different solutions in the networking industry. Out of this they have grown creatively with their solutions by offering a very comprehensive range of high-value support solutions.
These solutions cover the key components of any network life-cycle – planning, designing, implementing, training, optimizing, and maintaining.
