We propose a new network architecture nemed Holonic Network for personalized multimedia communications, which is characterized by distributed cooperative networking based on autonomous management and all-optical transport networks. We than propose autonomous routing method. Moreover, an information searching method and a route generation method with network maps, which are essential for this network, are proposed. Lastly, we evaluate the proposed network performance by theoretical analysis and system emulation.
