In this paper, we present a derivative of Midimew connected Mesh Network (MMN) by reassigning the free links for higher level interconnection for the optimum performance of the MMN; called Derived MMN (DMMN). We present the architecture of DMMN, addressing of nodes, routing of message and evaluate the static network performance. It is shown that the proposed DMMN possesses several attractive features, including constant degree, small diameter, low cost, small average distance, moderate bisection width, and same fault tolerant performance than that of other conventional and hierarchical interconnection networks. With the same node degree, arc connectivity, bisection width, and wiring complexity, the average distance of the DMMN is lower than that of other networks.
