Richard Steenbergen, nLayer Communications

Richard Steenbergen is the co-founder of nLayer Communications, a respectably sized and profitable North American based IP backbone, where he currently serves as the Chief Technical Officer. Richard brings years of experience in practical techniques for network operators, and is a frequent contributor in many community forums. Previously, Richard served as a Senior Network Engineer at several large NSPs, and was the Senior Software Engineer responsible for developing optimized routing technologies at netVmg, Inc.<BR> <BR> Richard is also an active developer for tools and software used by the network operator community. Some notable projects include PeeringDB, a portal used by many networks to help coordinate their peering activities, and IRRPT, a software package used by ISPs to maintain IRR-based prefix filters.
Abstract: Many people think they understand how to use and understand traceroute, yet the large number of traceroute based tickets at any sizable ISP proves that the vast majority of people do not. Even the ISPs themselves are frequently unable to come up with staff who are qualified to look at a traceroute and interpret it correctly.
