To Our Valued Customers and Partners:
We are very excited to share with you the news that Coriant has entered into a definitive agreement to be acquired by Infinera, a provider of Intelligent Transport Networks and a recognized industry leader and innovator in vertical integration technologies.
This move represents a great combination of complementary companies with a shared vision and common cultural values, and we believe it will yield significant benefits for Coriant’s global customers and partners as we combine to form an unmatched market leader with the scale, financial strength, and breadth of solutions to meet your high-performance networking needs well into the future.
Learn more in the press release.
This is an exciting time in the industry as emerging end-user applications such as 5G, residential broadband, and hyperscale cloud connectivity drive demand for more open, agile, and scalable networking solutions, and we look forward to the opportunity to expand and enhance the value we can bring you as part of Infinera’s expanded suite of best-in-class offerings.
Coriant and Infinera will continue to operate independently in a business as usual mode until the close of the acquisition, which is subject to regulatory approval. Your point of contact at Coriant will remain the same, and we will continue to focus on supporting your business needs with an unwavering commitment to service excellence.
We will share more information with you upon close of the acquisition, which is expected in the third quarter of 2018. In the meantime, we want to express our sincere appreciation for your ongoing support, confidence, and trust. Please do not hesitate to contact your Coriant account representative if you have any questions.
