Agilent Technologies on Tuesday said the name of the electronic measurement company it expects to spin off in early November 2014 will be Keysight Technologies.
“Keysight reflects our rich heritage—a direct line from both Hewlett-Packard’s standards of integrity and innovation and Agilent’s premier measurement business,” said Ron Nersesian, president and CEO of Keysight.
Keysight will concentrate on the electronic measurement industry, focusing on its test and measurement customers. The business, currently a part of Agilent, is the world leader in test and measurement, holding the No. 1 position in its industry segments of wireless data ecosystem; aerospace and defense; and industrial, computers and semiconductors. The new company will include the entire portfolio of Agilent electronic measurement products and the largest sales and support team in the test and measurement industry.
Expected to become a standalone company in early November 2014, Keysight will be headquartered in Santa Rosa, Calif., and have approximately 9,500 employees in 30 countries.
