JDSU Receives 2011 Frost & Sullivan Asia-Pacific Communications Test & Measurement Company of the Year Award

Company Recognized for Collaboration and Providing Industry-Leading LTE, Mobile Video, Next-Generation Broadband and Fiber Optic Test Solutions

MILPITAS, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 2, 2011) - JDSU (NASDAQ: JDSU) announced today it was recognized by Frost & Sullivan as the 2011 Asia-Pacific Communications Test & Measurement Company of the Year. JDSU's collaboration with in-region communications service providers and its proven expertise in innovative test and measurement solutions were cited as factors that led JDSU to outperform its competition.

"JDSU's diverse communications test and measurement solutions portfolio coupled with significant market strategies, both organic and inorganic, have resulted in a strong presence in the Asia-Pacific region," said Sriram Venkatasubramanian, consultant for Frost & Sullivan's Asia-Pacific Measurement and Instrumentation practice. "With the Asia-Pacific region witnessing increased adoption of LTE technology, for example, JDSU's end-to-end LTE test solution complements the goals of mobile operators in the region such as commercializing this technology, increasing the customer base, and attaining considerable success in the coming years."

Sriram added, "JDSU makes its presence felt across most of the communications test segments in the region and the company is essentially a one-stop-shop for communications test and measurement solutions in the Asia-Pacific region."

JDSU serves network equipment manufacturers and operators in the Asia-Pacific region with test and measurement solutions to quickly and cost-effectively deploy next-generation networks and services. In the study, JDSU's leadership position was attributed to enabling LTE/4G, fiber optic, xDSL as well as other critical networks, services and technologies.

Last year, CSL of Hong Kong, SingTel of Singapore and Chunghwa Telecom of Taiwan chose JDSU as their partner in LTE network trials and deployments. In addition, JDSU established one of its largest wireless research and development (R&D) sites in Singapore for wireless services/LTE test portfolio R&D. The Singapore facility joins JDSU's major operations in Beijing, Shenzhen, Suzhou, Tokyo, Penang and New Delhi providing JDSU with a significant in-region presence to expand its relationships with Asia-based customers and suppliers.

"Given that this is one of the fastest growing regions for wireless services, JDSU is committed to continuing its collaborative innovation with our customers throughout Asia-Pacific," said David Heard, president of JDSU's Communications Test and Measurement business segment. "As use of mobile devices and bandwidth-intensive services drive increasing network complexity, we look forward to continue helping our customers in the region deliver a quality experience to their customers."

The Frost & Sullivan Company of the Year award is presented annually to the organization that exhibits excellence in growth strategy and implementation, innovation in new products and technologies, and leadership in customer value and market penetration.
