Sorrento Networks is a global provider of metro optical access solutions, offering an edge-to-regional CWDM, DWDM and ROADM product portfolio to carriers and enterprises. Sorrento's products are used, individually or as part of an integrated solution, in communications network infrastructures operated by telecommunications service providers, cable operators, governments and enterprises around the globe. Sorrento's products facilitate cost-effective delivery of enterprise and consumer-oriented communication services efficiently adding bandwidth to clients' networks. By improving network productivity, reducing costs and enabling integrated service offerings, Sorrento's infrastructure and broadband access products create business and operational value for their customers.

The increasing importance of communications services to end users has driven growth in network capacity requirements and the expansion of high-bandwidth applications and services. The broader mix of high-volume high-quality traffic related to these applications is driving a transition from legacy network infrastructures – typically consisting of multiple, disparate networks – to more efficient, simplified, network architectures. Service providers are seeking network infrastructures better suited to handle higher bandwidth, multiservice traffic with greater efficiency, performance, security and reliability, while ensuring a return on their network investment. Sorrento's product portfolio and development efforts enable them to benefit from both increasing capacity requirements and the transition to more efficient and economical network architectures.

Originally founded 1993, acquired by Zhone Technologies in 2004, the Company was resurrected as standalone, private entity in 2008. The Company is headquartered in Denver, CO and has operations in Oakland, CA, and Stuttgart, Germany

CHB’s interest in Sorrento Networks was sold in 2014.
