SANTA CLARA, Calif. -- May 1, 2013

Agilent Technologies Inc. (NYSE:A) today announced that it received Frost &
Sullivan’s Global Company of the Year Award for radio-frequency test
equipment.

Engineers in RF design, R&D and manufacturing face continuously emerging test
challenges driven by increasingly complex modulation schemes, an ever-growing
number of industry standards, wider information bandwidths, and new frequency
bands and applications. They use Agilent’s spectrum, signal and network
analyzers to design, test, and maintain RF and microwave electrical
components, circuitry and equipment, particularly in wireless communications.

“Our unique research philosophy enables us to determine how best-in-class
companies worldwide manage growth, innovation and leadership,” said Frost &
Sullivan industry analyst Prathima Bommakanti. “We are pleased to give Agilent
this award recognition. Agilent has consistently maintained its position as
the dominant player in the global RF test equipment market. It offers a broad
range of products of both traditional and modular test equipment. Its success
can be primarily attributed to a first-to-market position and a genuine focus
on delivering the most value to its customers through a close working
relationship with them.”

“It is exciting to receive this level of global recognition for our RF test
leadership,” said Andy Botka, Agilent’s microwave and communications general
manager and vice president. “We work closely with our customers to support
their need to turn ideas into validated products as quickly and reliably as
possible. They expect their test equipment to provide enough flexibility to
accelerate measurement insight and support industry standards while
maintaining the highest level of measurement integrity.”

“Agilent’s position in the market can be primarily attributed to its
technological brilliance and its strong customer-focused approach,” Bommakanti
said. “A key strategy of Agilent to maintain its share in the global market
has been to provide a complete product portfolio with multiple performance
price points that each run common application software, plus delivering
complete solutions verses independent components. Agilent’s approach couples
flexibility with a clear focus on accelerating measurement insight and
maintaining measurement integrity.”
