Shenzhen, China - Bookham, Inc. (Nasdaq: BKHM), a leading provider of optical components, modules and subsystems, today announced that it has received the prestigious Excellent Supplier award from Huawei - China's largest telecoms equipment vendor and the third largest telecom optical networking equipment manufacturer worldwide - in recognition of the company's performance as a supplier in 2005. The award recognizes in particular the quality and delivery performance achieved by Bookham with products manufactured in its major new assembly facility in Shenzhen, China, from which nearly all of the Bookham telecom products are now being shipped.

Bookham supplies a wide range of its high end optical components and modules to Huawei, including 10Gb/s co-packaged laser-modulators, receivers, directly modulated lasers and optical pumps. Over the last three years Huawei has ranked among the Bookham top three customers in most quarters and this is the second time Bookham has been honored with an award from Huawei: in 2004, Bookham received the Gold Supplier of the Year Award, the first time an optical components company was awarded this prize.

"We are pleased to see that Bookham has maintained consistently high quality during the product transfer to Shenzhen and has even improved delivery performance since the transfer," said Danny Shi at Huawei.

"This award recognizes Bookham's commitment."

Bookham opened an advanced manufacturing facility in Shenzhen, in the same area as Huawei, in March 2004. Since then, transmit and receive optical assemblies, erbium-doped fiber amplifiers (EDFAs), mini gain block and metro amplifiers, and fiber and connector sub assemblies have been transferred and received customer approval. Production lines for receivers, pumps, direct modulated lasers and InP Mach-Zehnder (MZ) lasers have been fully qualified and customer volume shipment started.

Key quality systems and processes have also been established in Shenzhen in line with the company's best practices and global TL9000 and ISO9000:2000 registration.
