Currently utilizing tech established through Siemens Optical Networks (NSN ON), Sycamore Networks, and Tellelabs, Coriant was initially announced for the OFC/NFOEC. The same year the company emerged, it became independent from Nokia Siemens Networks via new ownership by Marlin Equity Partners. It was expected, and soon after announced, that there would be a greater merger with Sycamore Networks as well. More recently, Marlin Equity Partners announced the merger of Coriant and Tellalabs, the convergence of which became the company known as Coriant.

The company of Coriant revolves around the sale of hardware and software crafted specifically for optics related transmission per the function of a network backbone comprised of data and voice networks, not to mention mobile network infrastructure as well. The primary items produced for sale are the hiT 730, and the hiT 70xx. Software is also sold. Said software includes Transnet for network planning and TNMS for network managing.
