C&W Worldwide tagged Community Attribute Values

Introduction

The new implementation allows for a 5 digit string, following the "1273:" notation. Each bit/digit has a pertinent value and meaning represented in the following tables (1273:xxxxx). This was facilitated to provide the following routing information to customers receiving a routing table from C&W Worldwide via eBGP routing.

Identification of route source by

 
  • Customer or peer
  • Region
    • Predefined by C&W Worldwide
    • Based upon physical connection point
  • Country
    • Predefined by C&W Worldwide
    • Based upon physical connection point

Source of Route

The format for the second component of customer route community number (after 1273:) is set at five digits. This fixed length allows regular expressions to be used in routing policy statements to select subsets of customer routes. This format is 1273:SRCCC where the fields are coded in the following way.

"S" refers to 'source' of the route:

Source Code

 
Code Source
1 Customer
2 Peer
3 Upstream

Example:

      	1273:1xxxx	customer route
     	1273:2xxxx	peer route
	1273:3xxxx	upstream route

Region of Route

"R" The split is mainly geographic but it has been necessary to maintain India as a separate region for administrative reasons. 

Codes 9 and 0 are available for future region definitions.
