There has been much interest in building corporate private communication networks. This aim requires a method that optimizes the economical aspect of network configurations. The authors propose a network design method supported by knowledge-base. This method is used to design a cost-effective corporate communication network, using leased lines. The knowledge-base description depends on the production rule. The network configuration is improved by introducing expert knowledge, after designing the network by a conventional algorithm. Design results show the advantages of the proposed method.
