The need for interoperability is prominent in the industrial enterprise environment. Different applications and systems that cover the overall range of the industrial infrastructure from the field to the enterprise level need to interoperate. This quest is driven by the enterprise need for greater flexibility and for the wider possible integration of the(More)
The benefits of wireless extensions in industrial networks are well recognized as long as the integration of the wireless and fieldbus domains will be capable to offer the real-time and dependability quality of the current wired industrial networking solutions. This paper presents a study, from a performance point of view, for the possible integration of(More)
Ad hoc networks are characterized by dynamic topology caused by node mobility, multihop wireless connectivity and channel non-deterministic behavior (interference, multipath, hidden and exposed node problem make the wireless channel very difficult to predict). The behavior of ad hoc networks must be analyzed in detail as a result of the pairing of the(More)
— The benefits of wireless extensions in industrial networks are well recognized as long as the integration of the wireless and fieldbus domains will be capable of retaining the real-time and dependability quality of the current wired industrial networking solutions. In this paper, the architecture and the operation of a cut-through forwarding device are(More)
This paper discusses a novel architecture for remote Home Automation Networks e-Services on a n OSGi platform via high speed Internet connections ensuring QoS support. These connections can be ADSL links, an emerging technology which provides the user of the local loop with broadband speeds. Since ADSL is a technology in the local loop, the presence of a(More)
