Lumentum Receives 2015 “Excellent Core Partner” Award From Huawei

MILPITAS, Calif., Nov. 18, 2015 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Lumentum Holdings Inc. (“Lumentum”) announced today that it received the 2015 “Excellent Core Partner” award from Huawei -- one of the world's foremost providers of network solutions for the telecommunications market. This represents the fifth time in six years that Lumentum has won this distinction.

Lumentum President and CEO Alan Lowe accepted the award from Huawei’s Kevin Wu, SVP of Global Procurement, Chief of Production Procurement Committee, and Member of Global Procurement Committee. Mr. Lowe received an inscribed plaque on stage at Huawei’s annual Core Partner Conference held recently in Shenzhen, China. Out of the approximately 1,000 Huawei suppliers, only 140 are invited to the event and then only a handful actually get this coveted and prestigious award. It is the highest honor given by Huawei to any of its suppliers.

“It is exciting to receive the 'Excellent Core Partner' award again,” said Alan Lowe. “Our relationship with Huawei only continues to grow, and Lumentum takes great pride in the collaborative efforts both companies have achieved in the previous six years. I look forward to further solidifying our partnership and working together as next generation networks are installed.”

Lumentum provides Huawei a wide range of solutions that include optical components and modules for its transmission, transport and datacom products that support flexible network management. Lumentum’s products include Wavelength Selective Switching (WSS), 100G modules and 100G components, tunables, pluggables and passives. Huawei is deploying Lumentum’s market-proven solutions globally for high-speed data networks.

In 2010, 2012, 2013 and 2014, Lumentum (at that time, operating as the CCOP business segment of JDSU) also received the “Excellent Core Partner” award from Huawei for its service, product performance and quality.
