As usual, you seem to be the only sane voice in all of the optical market.
Gary Weiner, CEOApriori Network Systems
Many analysts are deliberately vague and hedge their bets. Much like the Oracle at Delphi, in retrospect they can interpret their predictions as prophetic. Mark, on the other hand, calls it as he sees it with clear and concise analysis.
Bardia Pezeshki, CEOAvicenaTech
This blog is an absolute must read for anyone in the optical business. It provides provocative and fresh perspectives that one cannot find with any other industry analyst. Not listening to Mark is like ignoring a moving train while standing on the railroad tracks.
Maxim Kuschnerov, Director of the Optical and Quantum Communications LaboratoryHuawei Technologies

Jeff Demain, Vice President of Business Development and MarketingAEPONYX
Mark is a true industry expert when it comes to all things telecommunications. His insights and knowledge are the best we have seen. Our discussions with Mark have always been hugely productive and informative given his breadth of knowledge across industry trends and competitive dynamics.
Mark’s analysis has helped me plenty! I have always been interested in his views as a base to compare my tendency to dream. If you want to know the bottom line on the industry today, Mark adds value in a big way. I believe these proven facts and data in concert with EPIC’s propensity to focus on “what if” scenarios resulted in a very valuable experience for everybody. I look forward to further great content from EPIC.
Pierre Wolkowicz, Product Line Manager,3SP Technologies
It is rare that you come across a stand-out talent in realistic market analysis like Mark. The exhaustive work that he did for EPIC, scouting photonics opportunities in 5G, earns my highest recommendation
