-BGP communities enable to label prefixes announced by BGP in order to apply specific policies. Two good examples of using BGP communities in real networks are provided for [[https://​www.sprint.net/​index.php?​p=policy_bgp | Sprint]] and [[https://​services.renater.fr/​connectivite/​routage_d_adresses | RENATER]].+BGP communities enable to label prefixes announced by BGP in order to apply specific policies.

 Let us analyze the illustration below provided by RENATER to explain how to use communities on its network. A dual-connected client network identifies a primary link and a secondary or backup link toward RENATER. In the BGP prefix announcements,​ this network can use the community ''​2200:​610''​ on the primary link, and the community ''​2200:​590''​ on the backup link. RENATER applies specific policies in order to implement the primary/​backup behavior. A simple way to do this is described in the following: Let us analyze the illustration below provided by RENATER to explain how to use communities on its network.
