Coriant Looks To Showcase The Latest In Technology

March 18, 2016

The optical networking experts at Coriant have been seeking the best options in improving the position of the brand in the eyes of those within the industry, and will bring a range of new products to the attention of the public in the near future. Under the newly installed leadership of Shaygan Kheradpir the U.S. and Germany based company will bring its latest innovations to the OFC 2016 forum in Anaheim, California, which should prove to be an exciting and innovative few days spent with industry experts.

Coriant has only been under the leadership of CEO Shaygan Kheradpir since late 2015 when the veteran technology executive took over the position from the promoted Pat DiPietro. Kheradpir had originally taken up a position with Coriant’s parent company, Marlin Equity Partners, to conduct a wide ranging review of the company to identify areas where profitability could be increased. The success and excellence of the review coupled with DiPietro’s move back to Marlin eventually led to Coriant approaching Kheradpir about taking over the brand.

The career of Shaygan Kheradpir would appear to make him the perfect match for the Coriant brand as the company looks to break the monopoly held by the top optical networking companies in the world. Kheradpir graduated from Cornell University with advanced degrees in electrical engineering, which led to him taking up a research executive role within GTE Labs and later Verizon. This is the period of the career of Shaygan Kheradpir that made his name in the technology industry as he stepped into the limelight by making innovative choices about how to develop new technology in a cost effective way. The London born executive did not limit his skills to developing new technologies, but also looked to other departments in the Verizon business where he could find the best ways of maximizing profits.

Coriant have made a number of breakthroughs that will be shown at the California based expo, including the unrivaled data center with 3.2 terabits of capacity. In recent months, Coriant have also unveiled lightning tolerant cabling that will go a long way to ensuring the company now headed by Kheradpir continues the impressive upward momentum it has created since being established in 2013.

Dog Food Companies Make it Easier to Feed Dogs Well


It seems like yesterday that dog food was thought of as something that was either dry or unrecognizable as food. This came form the days that companies thought that dog food had to be vastly different from the food that humans eat. However, it is well known that dogs eat a lot of similar foods that humans eat. Recently, companies began to explore this and thus created dog food that bears more of a resemblance to the food that humans eat. In fact, one of the philosophies is that dogs should be allowed to eat like their owners.

Among the premium dog food companies that offer dog food products that bear a huge resemblance to the foods that humans eat is Purina. Purina offers dry dog food. However, the highlight of Purina is their wet Beneful dog foods. Beneful food that they prepare actually looks and tastes like foods that humans eat. Dogs get to enjoy some of the same great taste that their owners enjoy. The products from Beneful are made from ingredients that could actually be seen. For instance, if the product is said to have rice in it, the dog and the owner could actually see the ingredients.

Beneful has product listings on the website which show what their products actually look like. Among the ingredients and recipes that are available is chicken tomatoes and wild rice for their “Incredibites” products. This flavor variety is actually made with real chicken. Purina actually takes the actual meat of chicken and puts it into the can for the owner to feed his dog.
