Agilent Technologies has increased R&D investment in China with the establishment of the new China Communications Operation (CCO) for wireline and wireless design and test.
Located on the same site as Agilent Labs in Beijing, the CCO’s core capabilities will be in the area of advanced software development in telecommunications design, test and monitoring systems.
Specifically, this will include application development and local business support for appliance R&D and manufacturing test solutions for the wireless industry, such as wireless handsets for TD-SCDMA, CDMA2000 and WCDMA, and modelling and simulation software tools for 3G rollout.
“Agilent is totally committed to accelerating the development and progress of China’s communications industry,” Agilent’s CCO general manager Earl Thompson said.
“By locating our R&D and marketing resources closer to our China customers, we will be able to partner with them and offer them tailor-made solutions”.
