Virtual circuits are routed and grouped into virtual paths during an interactive topology design process. Virtual circuits are assigned to virtual paths that provide minimum cost to each pass through a topology design. Virtual paths are dispersed into subgroups that minimize bandwidth consumption and maximize routing flexibility. This topology optimization process is constrained to minimize use of network resources.
