Industrial wireless has great potential to improve the monitoring and control of various processes and equipment in distributed automation systems because of advances in wireless networks and installation flexibility. However, harsh industrial environments and interference from the crowded electromagnetic frequency spectrum make it challenging for wireless to achieve the required performance. Thus, it is important to understand the benefits of wireless in certain industrial settings, the approach for reliable operations, the technologies to be used, and the best practices for successful deployment.
