About Me

My name is Olusesan Ogunsakin but most people at work calls me “Olu”.  My “people” (family and friends) call me Sesan. As you can see, the 2 name tags are taken from my real name – Olusesan.

I am a Senior Software Test/Verification engineer and I have been doing that for the past 8 years first with Nortel (2000-2001, back again in 2004) , then Alcatel (2003) and lately Cisco Systems (2004 – Date).  Prior to these, I was working as a Network Administrator/Support Engineer with a company called Resourcery Limited in Lagos, Nigeria. Those were the days of MCSE & Compaq ASE  (I obtained MCSE in 1998 and Compaq Accreditted System Engineer in 1999). I finally emigrated to Canada to begin another journey in my life chapter.

For education backgroud, I obtained a B.Sc in Computer Science from Obafemi Awolowo Unversity, Ile-Ife in 1994 and completed a National Service in Nigeria by 1995 (NYSC).  I also added a M.Sc degree from University of Ottawa last year.

Obtaining CCIE is my plan this year. Even though I really do not need it to work or secure a job but I believe having it will bring technical credibility and also open new doors of opportunity.  My time to obtain this has come and everything around me seem to point in that direction – many of my friends have obtained theirs, it cost almost nothing now to setup a lab – thanks to Dynamips!, desire to convince myself that I am among the best.  If am ever going to get CCIE – now is the time !.

 On family front, I am married to the most beautiful/pleasant woman in the world with 2 (now 3) kids all under the age of 3.5 years. And I reside currently in Ottawa, Canada.

  1. Have you done your CCIE Lab exam?

  2. No I have not done the Lab exam. My lab is currently scheduled to be done in December.

    I have been a bit quiet on this blog for about 3 weeks as I really do not have enough room to blog. But studying is actively progressing. I have started working my ways through InternetworkExpert labs 1 -3.

  3. hello sesan,

    happy to hear from you

    i have always wanted to work with Resourcery Limited,but had never been given a chance for an interview.

    i am an electrical/elcectronic graduate from futo and currently studying for my ccnp exam

    i would be glad if u can help me out


  4. chonky,

    Not sure I can help on that now. I left that company almost 9 years now and almost everyone I knew then had “moved on” except the company directors.

    I will make some enquiries and see if I can still get a contact for you. All the best in your ccnp prep.

  5. Best of luck with your lab attempt this month!
