This document presents examples and inspiration for operator
application of BGP Large Communities.  Based on operational
experience with BGP Communities, this document suggests logical

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
