For Future Internet multimedia distribution with different levels of guarantees a transport solution may consist in creation of parallel multi-domain Virtual Content Aware Networks (VCAN) constructed as overlays over IP networks. How to map the VCANs topologies and requested capacities on real core network domain resources both inter and intra-domain while optimizing the resource usage is still an open research issue. This paper continues previous studies for a hierarchical method to perform VCAN mapping while meeting QoS constraints for multi-domain VCANs.
