B(G) and Bc(G) denote the bandwidth and cyclic bandwidth of graph G, respectively. In this paper, we shall give a characterization of graphs with equal bandwidth and cyclic bandwidth. Those graphs include any plane graph G with B(G) < p/m, where p and m are the number of vertices and the maximum degree of bounded faces of G, respectively. Hence convex triangulation meshes Tm,n,l with min{m,n,l}≥4 and grids Pm × Pn with m≥3 also fall in this class.
