Periodic systems with the silver-based waveguides are discussed. The elementary cell in such systems consists of several waveguides. We employ the multiple scattering formalism based on solving the Maxwell equations solution for a single cylinder. The method involving the lattice-sum transformation into a fast convergent series is implemented. This enables us not only to increase the computational accuracy but also to reduce the necessary time for performing the numerical simulation. It is shown that under condition of nonzero propagation constant, the guided modes located closely in the frequency region appear. The number of these modes equals the number of waveguides in the elementary cell of the system. As a quasi-wave vector approaches the edge of the Brillouin zone, the frequency of these modes decreases. Increasing the propagation constant affects the modes shifting them towards the high frequency region. It is also shown that it is possible to match simultaneously wave vector and frequency of guided modes in the zigzag shaped systems.
