BGP Communities

Traffic Engineering Communities

We use BGP Extended Communities to provide traffic-engineering control down to each ASN.

The communities below will be stripped while exporting to our transit providers and peering partners to reduce the load of control plane.

Description BGP Extended Communitiy
Don't announce to peering partners        rt, 65009, 65100
Don't announce to transit providers       rt, 65009, 65000
