This paper considers the problem of designing ATM networks that are nonblocking with respect to virtual circuit requests, subject to specified constraints on the traffic. In this paper, we focus on global traffic constraints that simply limit the total entering and exiting traffic at each switching system. After reviewing prior results for linear link costs, we introduce a more realistic link cost model, and develop a number of results using it. We also describe a technique for converting tree-structured networks to nonblocking hierarchical networks satisfying limits on the capacity of any single switch.
