Coriant will deliver carrier-grade metro Ethernet services to the Philippines thanks to a partnership with solutions provider Converge ICT Solutions. The deployment will roll out services across more than 450 sites and will help Converge to serve the broadband, wholesale and cloud connectivity needs of its customers.
Coriant added that the Groove G30 will enable ESpanix to cost-efficiently deliver 100G interconnect services, while significantly reducing leased fibre costs via improvements in DWDM transmission efficiencies and spectral utilisation. It will also give ESpanix a path to higher interconnect speeds, including 400G client side and 600G line side transmission, without the need for forklift upgrades or costly and complex flexi-grid ROADMs.
Coriant -- has plenty of innovation and smarts that enable it to compete with the other leaders and is particularly strong in driving greater efficiencies from its form factors, the kind of capabilities that attract operators such as AT&T and would also pique Cisco's interest. Coriant is privately held so it's hard to say what kind of price it would command but its revenues are estimated to be more than $500 million so a buyout would probably eat up the guts of $1 billion at the very least.
Sagarmatha’s broad base of shareholders includes pre-eminent international investors such as Quantum Fund co-founder Jim Rogers, and Harold E. Doley Jr, who has been a member of the New York Stock Exchange for 34-years, along with trade unions, and a number of strategic partners such as British Telecoms, Coriant, Nokia, Saab Grintek Technologies, and Siemens.

Telia Carrier and Coriant have completed a live field trial of technology designed to improve dynamic provisioning of fiber optic capacity. The trial, conducted last month on a live fiber route in Telia Carrier's backbone network between Hamburg and Prague, set out to demonstrate the ability to enhance end-user service reliability and improve operational efficiencies using innovations in online service planning, in-service optical margin measurement, and real-time health check analytics. The technology used in the trial, Coriant Aware, is currently being demonstrated at the OFC show in San Diego.
Coriant formed an executive advisory board and appointed Shanker Baheria, Rick Hubbard, Daniele Ruvinetti, Sam, Saba, and Alex Shalaby to the initial board. Former EVP and CTO of Nokia Hossein Molin also joined Coriant as a strategic executive advisor. Sandra Krief was named managing director for North America at Coriant.
