1. A communication device, comprising:
circuitry configured to:
receive, as a first packet, one of:
a second packet transmitted from a terminal device; or
a third packet transmitted to the terminal device,
wherein the first packet includes header information;
determine to control a communication path of the first packet;
acquire the header information from the first packet, wherein the header information includes an application class of the first packet;
classify the first packet based on the application class;
select a first forwarding destination node for the first packet based on the classification of the first packet and the determination of the control of the communication path of the first packet;
transmit the first packet to the first forwarding destination node; and
insert intermediate node designation information into a first destination field of the first packet,
wherein the intermediate node designation information designates an intermediate node, different from the first forwarding destination node, on a path to the first forwarding destination node of the first packet, and
wherein the intermediate node designation information designates a different intermediate node for each terminal class of the first packet.
