Standard for Radio Frequency Channel Specifications for Performance Assessment of Industrial Wireless Systems

This standard establishes a radio frequency (RF) reference environment model with a set of profiles establishing parameters for performance assessment scenarios. The standard applies to all wireless protocols intended for use in industrial and mission-critical industrial settings in which reliability concerns are important to the functioning of the underlying operational systems. These industrial wireless systems are used for carrying vital sensor, actuator, command, and control information. This standard includes a model that represents the radio frequency environment and accounts for performance degradation factors (aggressors) that impact radio channel behavior. Individual profiles are included to address the needs of different industries and levels of severity of the radio channel environment. Performance degradation factors include interference, competing traffic, and multi-path propagation. The standard does not cover the specifics of hardware implementations, underlying algorithms used to produce the RF reference environment or the methods by which the RF communications systems operate within the environment. Signal processing algorithms, machine-learning algorithms, and other implementation details are not considered for this standard.

Other Activities From This Working Group

Current projects that have been authorized by the IEEE SA Standards Board to develop a standard.

No Active Projects

Standards approved by the IEEE SA Standards Board that are within the 10-year lifecycle.

No Active Standards

These standards have been replaced with a revised version of the standard, or by a compilation of the original active standard and all its existing amendments, corrigenda, and errata.

No Superseded Standards

These standards have been removed from active status through a ballot where the standard is made inactive as a consensus decision of a balloting group.

No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards

These standards are removed from active status through an administrative process for standards that have not undergone a revision process within 10 years.

No Inactive-Reserved Standards
