This paper presents an analytical framework for evaluating and optimizing routing and path establishment strategies for multimedia communication in an integrated services network. Based on a given routing strategy, we show how to determine the probability of success for the establishment phase by using a stochastic knapsack approximation. Our method can be used to optimize the assignment routing paths in a manner which maximizes the probability of the network being able to support multimedia connection requests. This is done through the use of a new cost function called the marginal blocking cost of a link.
