Marlin Equity Adds Sycamore to Coriant

Marlin Equity Partners will combine Sycamore Networks Solutions with Coriant. Sycamore supplies optical switching and multiservice access platforms.

Marlin Equity acquired Sycamore from its public shareholders in January 2013.  The business will become Coriant America Inc., and will remain headquartered in Chelmsford, Massachusetts. Sycamore will also adopt the Coriant brand for all of its product and service offerings.

Coriant's full portfolio now includes 100G+ optical transport, OTN switching, and software-defined service control and management solutions for Tier 1 service providers worldwide. 

“We are excited to harness a deeper pool of optical networking expertise as we leverage the combined strengths of 
these exceptional teams to advance Coriant’s global market position,” said Pat DiPietro, an operating partner at 
Marlin. “With an expanded solutions portfolio and greater operational scale, we will be well-positioned for 
continued growth and innovation.”
