We study the topology design of an important subset of mesh network-regular mesh network in the context of wavelength division multiplex (WDM) metropolitan area network (MAN). We find that minimum hop distance is an important parameter in dimensioning both the network's physical size but also the network node resources required to support the ever increasing traffic demand. By assigning realistic cost structures to these network nodes and link resources, we are able to specify the optimal node degrees analytically for interesting classes of good regular topologies as the networks scale in size.
