<p>Two recent topologies-Manhattan Street Network (MSN) and HR/sup 4/-Net (or 2-D Torus)-proposed for metropolitan areas are primarily mesh connected networks. The authors compare the average distance, the diameter, the terminal reliability, and the cost. Simulation results indicate that they are fairly close in performance, while the MSN is observed to be more cost-effective than the HR/sup 4/-Net.</p>
