    i3D.net, known for their high performance global network is very proud that our very own Network specialist Martijn Schmidt has contributed together with NTT and the Netherlands Network Operator Group, to create RFC 8195 which advises on logical categories of BGP Large Communities and demonstrating an orderly manner of organizing community values within them to achieve typical goals in routing policy.

    BGP Large Communities solve a big issue for network operators world-wide. They are a way of signaling information between BGP networks. Communities are often used to either send information or trigger an action (such as depref, prepend, block exporting).

    RFC 8195 presents examples and inspiration for the operational application of BGP Large Communities. The document suggests logical categories of BGP Large Communities and demonstrates an orderly manner of organizing community values within them to achieve typical goals in routing policy. Any operator can consider using the concepts presented as the basis for their own BGP Large Communities repertoire.
