To diffuse multimedia information services, communication networks must guarantee the quality of services (QoSs) requested by users. In addition, users should be allowed to observe the network in order to customize their own services. A new network management architecture is therefore essential. It must perceive not only node connectivity, but also network failure points and the traffic situation dynamically. This paper introduces the network map as such an architecture on personalized multimedia communication networks and proposes multiple QoS routing using the network map. Moreover, a prototype system is built in order to verify the availability of the network map.
