Agilent Technologies Inc. (A: Quote) announced an agreement to collaborate with China Mobile Communications Co. Ltd. Research Institute or CMRI.
The two companies signed a memorandum of understanding in Beijing to initiate a collaboration that will focus on developing technology and test methods for a next-generation cloud-based radio access network, or C-RAN.
