5/23/2003 - Venture Corporation Limited and Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE: A) announced an agreement to further develop Agilent's existing wireless network optimization tools. Agilent plans to build upon Venture's expertise to make the manufacturing and development of its Air Interface Remote Monitoring Solution (RMS) more cost-effective.
Agilent's Air Interface RMS is a new optimization solution designed to increase work force efficiency up to 60 percent by remotely monitoring and collecting network performance data. A series of remote probes are deployed in service and test vehicles throughout a network to collect RF (radio frequency), data throughput and call event data. The probes then send continuous streams of data back to a central server where reporting and trend analysis is performed via the user's Web browser.
Venture plans to provide manufacturing and development expertise for the Agilent Air Interface RMS product line. The product line continues to be an Agilent-branded solution, sold and marketed through Agilent, with design and manufacturing supported by Venture.
"Venture is constantly exploring new ways of adding value to our customer service and this agreement creates yet another opportunity for us to do just that," said N.L. Wong, CEO, Venture. "We are also excited by this agreement as it will enable us not only to strengthen our relationship with Agilent, but also to showcase our expertise in design and manufacturing of communication products."
"The Air Interface RMS is an important component of Agilent's wireless optimization portfolio and continues to be important as our customers migrate from manned drive test to lower-cost unattended solutions," said Bill Wood, vice president and general manager of Agilent's Communications Test Equipment Business Unit. "Our relationship with Venture allows us to become more cost-efficient as an organization while we continue to market in-demand solutions."
