You are right. Developers can use the StreetMap application programming interface (API) to run routing using the StreetMap Premium dataset which is essentially a .sdc (Smart Data Compression) street dataset. You can find StreetMap objects in the ESRI.ArcGIS.DataSourcesFile namespace.
I am not sure if this interface from ArcObjects will be available in ArcGIS Engine (which is basically ArcObjects with the ArcGIS GUI objects removed). Let's wait what other folk say since this is not directly my area of expertise. Meanwhile, take a look at this sample if you did not yet. Maybe it will help you to move forward.
Here is the sample on routing with StreetMap Premium data: http://help.arcgis.com/en/sdk/10.0/arcobjects_net/conceptualhelp/index.html#/Sample_StreetMap_routing/00010000039s000000/ with ArcObjects.
Thanks for the responses. Ironically I had visited the links in both responses before my posting and was still having issues. Revisiting the How to open a network dataset link however got me to my resolution. I once again found myself with what I believed to be an issue of opening the workspace where the StreetMaps SDC was located. Turns out that it wasn't so much an issue of opening that workspace as it was unable to locate the tables and feature classes in the geodatabase. The solution I found was two different workspaces that directed to each individual file path to properly access the files needed for each step of the Network Analyst.
Thanks for helping me get past my hurdle!
