Originating BGP advertisements and BGP community tagging in Cisco IOS-XR

Originating BGP advertisement can be configured to any iBGP peer router. Here’s the sample configuration of originating BGP routes and community tagging in Cisco

Assuming these are the summarized prefixes that you want to advertise via BGP.
111.111.0.0/16
222.222.0.0/16

Configuration:

prefix-set SITE1
111.111.0.0/16,
222.222.0.0/16
end-set

route-policy bgp-statement
if destination in SITE1 then
set community (12345:111)
endif
end-policy

router bgp 11111
nsr
bgp router-id 1.1.1.1
bgp graceful-restart
address-family ipv4 unicast

In Formal:
