Abstract

Industrial wireless is becoming increasingly needed in the Industrial Internet of Things (IIoT) for carrying mission-critical data to leverage the visibility, control, and safety of industrial environments. In this paper we propose a framework that assesses various physical and cyber factors involved in determining the performance of a wireless use case. Factors in the use cases are enumerated in a conceptually tiered structure using domain knowledge in operational technology (OT) applications, data services, and information technology (IT) infrastructures. The correlations between factors are discussed within a domain as well as between domains regarding their performance impacts in search for a design that leads to an efficient wireless solution. Due to the diversity and variety of IIoT practices, such a classification of wireless use cases that identifies general and specific requirements on wireless network performance would be of high practical value to industrial wireless network design.
