@gabek Software engineers, in modern parlance, seems to be someone who is "full stack," but not in terms of metal to UI, but rather in business matters. E.g., someone who is able to prognosticate the future and come up with solutions to head off future problems, etc.

Point-to-multipoint access can distribute traffic across multiple nodes going back to multiple backbone connections
