Agilent Collaborates with China Mobile on 5G

Agilent Technologies agreed to collaborate with China Mobile Communications on the next–generation 5G wireless communication systems.

Agilent will actively support the research and development programs on 5G, led by China Mobile, and provide test and measurement solutions for next-generation 5G wireless communication systems.

As the deployment and commercial operation of 4G systems are speeding up, technologists worldwide have begun searching for next-generation wireless solutions to meet the anticipated demands in the 2020 era given the explosive growth of mobile Internet, and this will lead us to the fifth generation 5G.

The 5G research areas of CMRI will focus on the major technical aspects of 5G, including large-scale antenna systems (LSAS), full-duplex radio, energy efficiency and spectral efficiency co-design, and new signaling/control mechanisms to achieve the main theme of "green and soft."

"Our strong collaboration with CMRI on the 5G research will allow us to lead the technology exploration of next-generation wireless communication systems," said Andy Botka, Agilent vice president and general manager of the Microwave and Communications Division. “We will provide the CMRI research teams with the measurement expertise required to design, develop and validate their new 5G systems and set up the 5G prototype test-bed."

Agilent to Split Off Electronic Measurement Business from Life Sciences

Agilent Technologies plans to separate into two publicly traded companies: one in life sciences, diagnostics and applied markets (LDA) that will retain the Agilent name, and the other that will be comprised of Agilent's current portfolio of electronic measurement (EM) products.

The new EM company, which will be named later, holds a leading position in major markets including communications; aerospace and defense; and industrial, computers and semiconductors. FY13 estimated revenues are $2.9 billion.

Key products for the EM company include: signal sources and signal analyzers, network analyzers, one-box testers, oscilloscopes and testing instruments, software and services. The EM company will be headquartered in Santa Rosa, California and initially is not expected to pay a dividend. It has about 9,500 employees.

"Agilent has evolved into two distinct investment and business opportunities, and we are creating two separate and strategically focused enterprises to allow each to maximize its growth and success," said William (Bill) Sullivan, Agilent president and CEO.

"Agilent's history is one of reinvention, starting with our own separation from HP and including four major spinoffs since 2005. We are once again making a bold move, as we have done many times in the past, to ensure a future of sustainable growth for both the LDA and EM companies," he said. "We are focused on making this transition seamless for our customers."

CyrusOne to Build Massive Houston Data Center for Oil/Gas Industry

CyrusOne, which operates 25 carrier neutral data centers, announced plans to build a third data center at its Houston West campus, which is Beltway 8 in Houston’s Energy Corridor.

The new facility will be a research and development center of excellence for oil and gas industry and will enlarge the CyrusOne campus to more than 1 million square feet of data center space and 200,000 square feet of Class A office space. Total power capacity will be around 100 megawatts.

“CyrusOne’s Houston West campus is well known as the largest data center campus for seismic exploration computing in the oil and gas industry,” explained Kevin Timmons, chief technology officer at CyrusOne. “By continuing to apply our Massively Modular design/build approach and high-density compute expertise, the new facility will allow us to serve the growing number of oil and gas customers who are demanding best-in-class mission-critical infrastructure. The 200,000 square feet of Class A office building will enable us to expand the ecosystem for facilitating research and development of geophysical exploration data by providing office space for employees of the world’s leading oil and gas companies as well as academicians from the leading universities that are all involved in conducting petrochemical analytical research."

CyrusOne also operates a National Internet Exchange (National IX), which connects a dozen CyrusOne facilities in five metropolitan markets (Dallas, Houston, Austin, San Antonio and Phoenix.)

Agilent Intros 8x8 MIMO Test for LTE-Advanced

Agilent Technologies has introduced the first LTE-Advanced 8x8 MIMO signal-generation and analysis solutions.

LTE-Advanced promises peak data rates of up to 1 Gbps in the downlink and 500 Mbps in the uplink by aggregating up to five component carriers, each up to 20 MHz wide.  It also leverages  improved multi-antenna techniques in both uplink and downlink. For the downlink, LTE-Advanced introduces transmission mode 9, which enables Multiple-Input Multiple-Output (MIMO) with up to 8 spatial streams and antennas.

Agilent's LTE-Advanced 8x8 MIMO signal-generation and analysis solutions comprise Signal Studio and 89600 VSA software, as well as the Agilent X-Series vector signal generators and multi-channel signal analyzer with up to eight measurement channels. The solutions support generation and analysis of FDD and TDD signals compliant with the 3GPP Release 10 standard.

Agilent said its solution allows engineers to start testing physical layer implementations of LTE-Advanced devices.  Its multi-channel signal analyzer enables full analysis of LTE-Advanced standards on next-generation antennas, base stations and user equipment. Working with the 89600 VSA, it enables phase-synchronous and cross-channel measurements with up to eight RF channels in a single mainframe.

"As a recognized leader and provider of world-class LTE solutions, Agilent plays a pivotal role in the development, revision and implementation of the 4G technology, LTE-Advanced," said Andy Botka, vice president and general manager of Agilent's Microwave and Communications Division. "Our first-to-market 8x8 MIMO test solutions further complement Agilent's comprehensive portfolio of LTE-Advanced signal-generation and analysis solutions, and reaffirm our commitment to actively leading the evolution of LTE to a 4G technology."
