Agilent Technologies Inc. and Datang Telecom Technology & Industry Holdings Co. Ltd have signed an agreement to collaborate in the development of TD-SCDMA and related technologies in the test and measurement areas. The work will significantly propel the TD-SCDMA, industry chain and global competitive environment for this important technology.

As the initiator of the TD-SCDMA 3G mobile communication international standard, the owner of core patents, Datang Holdings plays a key role in the creation and global deployment of TD-SCDMA and TD LTE. Agilent and Datang Holdings will work together to support the TD-SCDMA and other China indigenous innovation technologies and promote their global competitiveness.

"Our strategy has been to innovate using open win-win principles through cooperation with international equipment manufacturers and operators. Consequently, the successful commercial development of TD-SCDMA has spurred more than 200 new enterprises. Agilent has always supported China's local technology and industry development," said Zhen Caiji, board chairman and president of Datang Holdings. "As early as 2002 Agilent's TD-SCDMA test and measurement solutions were available for TD research and development. Agilent joined the TD-SCDMA Forum even when the TD policies were not formalized. We expect our successful strategic cooperation with Agilent will accelerate the TD-SCDMA globalization process and future opportunities of other emerging indigenous wireless technologies."

"China is the second-largest market for Agilent outside the U.S.," said Bill Sullivan, Agilent president and CEO. "The rapid economic growth in China during the past 30 years has delivered many diversified technologies and business opportunities to multinational companies. The government's issue of 3G licenses provides strong support and confidence for both domestic and foreign manufacturers, especially during this current economic downturn. This could speed up investment and deployment by telecom operators, positively impacting the global financial environment. Agilent and Datang Holdings signed the agreement in alignment with each company's global development goals and our strategic intent to focus on China. Agilent will continue to make significant investments in TD-SCDMA and TD-LTE test solutions to support the TD-SCDMA and TD-LTE deployment in international markets."
