Expert has used his 2G mobile network transmission experience via a wide range of vendor products to be part of the Project team that built Africa's most extensive Network for MTN Nigeria. Vendor names include Ericsson, Harris Stratex, Huawei, Tellabs, DMC just to mention a few.

Expert through his expertise in 2G mobile transmission provided network capacity for the integration of over 2,500 out of over 10,000 base stations in the MTN Nigeria network.

Expert's general proficiency in microwave design, installation and integration is well felt in on-going MDNS (Managed Data Network Services) in the Nigerian Banking sector, Oil exploration, Cooperate Finance and Telco.

Expert is also actively involved in building the most extensive, longest and advanced Fiber optic Backbone in the world. Such protocols and standards like DWDM, SDH and wavelength are Expert's expertise. Expert has work on different and complex Fiber Network topologies running along side some redundant Microwave topologies such as Linear, Mesh, Multi-regional rings, Multi-regional ring/mesh hybrid, E-metro, SNCP protected rings, ASON designs etc.

Expert has commissioned over 3,000km of fiber transmission infrastructure and counting. Expert has equally integrated over 300 Network Transmission Nodes cross-connecting Fiber layers of the network to Microwave layers hence providing huge Network capacity in very high demand in Nigeria. Expert has been trained on Fiber optic manufacturing, Optic Fiber Implementation Project Management, Expert is currently researching Telecommunication in developing countries and factors that influence the growth of Telecommunication in underdeveloped/developing countries. Expert has a certificate awarded by ATC (PTY) South Africa for Advanced Fiber optic Implementation standards.

Expert has managed, implemented, upgraded, installed directly, decommissioned, integrated, IP networked, supported over 400 Ericsson/Tellabs Transmission Multiplexers in the MTN Nigeria Network between 2002 to Date. Expert has also manages a team of Project Engineers/Coordinators on Transmission Network equipment deployment. Expert has effectively managed the swap out of several SDH Microwave capacity radio back to back over 7 years and handled the most intricate and delicate Network changes and cutovers for the past 7 years. Expert has received training on Ericsson/Tellabs Backbone Multiplexer in Ericsson Education Sweden.

Expert is very proficient in implementing, testing different types of fiber optic cables for Network transmission capacity like multimode, single mode, category figure 8 protected cables, fiber attenuators and other fiber optic network equipment.

Expert is very key to the ongoing WIMAX planning, survey and implementation project in MTN Nigeria as well as point to multi-point sectoral transmission (PMP) by Cambridge Networks in the UK, these products work with the principle of sectoral transmission and are key to the current 3G/3.5G Network roll-out that Expert is actively involved in. Expert has effectively implemented transmission for 3G/3.5G RNC nodes and also down to the Node B's with Ericsson Tellabs high capacity SDH Multiplexers. Expert has also handled multiple SDH capacities like STM_4, STM_16, STM_64 over DWDM infrastructures. He has troubleshooted multiple SDH capacity links in the course of such projects.

Expert has attended Network synchronization courses in the UK by Symetricom, Marconi Long Haul trainings in Germany, and a host local trainings in Cambridge PMP, Wimax, numerous Ericsson, Harris Stratex PDH and SuperPDH courses as well.
