Designing a backbone IP network, especially to support both unicast and multicast traffic under delay constraints, is a difficult problem. Real network design must consider cost, performance and reliability. Therefore, a simulator can help a network designer to test the functionality of the network before the implementation. This paper proposes a heuristic design algorithm called D-MENTOR, and the algorithm was developed by programming based on Mesh Network Topological Optimization and Routing Version 2 (MENTOR-II) to integrate as a new module of DElite tool. The simulation results show that, in almost all test cases, the proposed algorithm yields lower installation cost.
