    It is possible that some of the requirements are listed because the work
    involves new protocols or algorithms that share some aspects in common with
    the ones mentioned. Or the hiring manager thinks that if you know your way
    around those, you would be way ahead of other candidates in stack-smarts.

    I believe that part of your premise is wrong. I've already run into a
    several "new" stack development projects. Consider this scenario - what if
    a chip company wanted to reduce to silicon a TCP/IP stack - or some subset?

    That's probably what some of the jobs involve too.

    Also keep in mind that many of those "invented and designed" stacks still
    exhibit bugs and other nasty critters. Somebody has to go in there and
    exterminate them.

  2. [not a job offer] network engineers vacancies

    Hello,

    Often skimming through recruiting agencies, I find the vacancies named
    "Network protocol engineer", "Protocols stack developer" etc.("...The
    candidates should have a good understanding
    of network and routing protocols, in particular IP, MPLS, VPLS, ATM, Frame
    Relay, Ethernet, routing protocols such as BGP, OSPF...")

    I'm just wondering what sort of jobs are done on such vacancies -- as all
    such protocols and stacks had been already invented and designed, what else
    to do? Ot it's rather related with optimization, profiling, porting on new
    platforms/network processors etc. ?

    PS. no grumbling, just curious :-)

    Best regards, Roman Mashak
