Experiance gained:

Telkom Mobile – Project Manager - Largest Wi-Fi Hot Spot network in South Africa, at 1700 Hotspots. Controlling the budget of R40 Million for the access and core network.

Bombardier – Project Contract Administrator – AFC stakeholder communication, finance, test and commissioning, as built drawings, milestones, software release check list and business rules, Within 2 weeks of starting on the AFC project of the Gautrain project I had the Finances of the subcontractor in check.

Transnet has 200+ transportation tunnels with no communication facilities leading to 130 accidents, 28 derailments, and 300+ fatalities – creating millions of rand’s in capital losses. Proposed and installed a R1M RF system. Decreased to 52 accidents, seven derailments, and 55 fatalities the next year – all due to human error. Prototype Tunnels - MPT1327, Cedara – two 6 Km tunnels and Conventional radio, Hexriver – 13 Km tunnel.

TranstelWireless solution design, business proposal - Integrated WiMax into hospital operations. Contacted by Medicross to create a reliable network that allowed five area hospitals to connect X-ray equipment to a dedicated printer in a remote location. Evaluated systems, determined bandwidth requirements, and replaced wire-line system. Finished R500K project in five months.

Transtel – Wireless solution design, prototype, business proposal and tender documentation including equipment specification. - Improved city-wide transportation system.
