It was impossible to find a globally optimal route on hierarchical transport network because of the successive subnetwork partitioning and network topology abstraction. So, this paper proposes a hierarchical routing model that provides a globally optimal route on hierarchical ATM transport network. In addition, this paper proposes distributed connection management architecture adopting the proposed routing model. The hierarchical routing model and the distributed connection management architecture are specified in terms of information, computational and engineering viewpoints of RM-ODP. We implement the proposed routing model and the distributed connection management architecture, and show that the proposed connection management architecture always provides a globally optimal route with admissible performance by empirical performance analysis.
