Taipei, Aug. 21 (CNA) U.S. chipmaker Intel Corp. and Chunghwa Telecom Co., Taiwan's largest wireless carrier, signed a memorandum of understanding Thursday on the development of technology related to the Internet of Things (IoT), cloud computing and software-defined networking .

At a press conference, the two companies said they will jointly explore the software-defined infrastructure to optimize energy efficiency at cloud data centers.

Their collaboration on IoT technology, meanwhile, will focus on smart homes, energy management and fleet management, they said.
