Abstract:	Automatic route search in telecommunication networks will be
		very important in future. Numerous technical and economic 
		aspects have to be considered when choosing a route in a 
		transport network. Fuzzy rule bases offer an excellent 
		opportunity to take all essential aspects into account when
		evaluating possible routes. A shortest route strategy for 
		transport networks is presented, which is based on this
		technique. The results demonstrate that once established the
		network quality is preserved when using this method for route
		selection in transport networks.
