The use of wireless technologies in Factory Automation is attractive due to several advantages (mobility, cost, etc.); however, to satisfy the requirements of industrial applications, they have to be improved in terms of real-time performance. Handover is a particular weakness in cellular wireless systems, e. g., in IEEE 802.11, since it may introduce delay(More)
Ethernet-based fieldbus protocols, are rapidly becoming the preferred choice for networked control systems (NCS) in Factory Automation. Identification of real-time Ethernet (RTE) traffic flows (TFs) is needed for networks that support parameterized QoS services. In this paper, we present a method based on cross-layer packet inspection to identify TFs of(More)
