Author Biography - Lesile Hewitson

Mark has compressed a tremendous amount of practical experience in his 15 years of engineering with a wide spectrum of activities from power system protection, telecommunications, power quality and finally fibre optic design and installation. Although one could conclude that as a result "he is a jack of all trades, but master of none", he has demonstrated a significant track record of success in each of these areas in his design and commissioning work. He has specialised in the fibre optic field for the past few years providing solutions from fibre management frames, DWDM, test equipment and fibre management software.
