Standard for the Performance Assessment of Industrial Wireless Systems

Industrial wireless systems are used for carrying sensor, actuator, and control information for operational usage. This standard establishes a functional model for radio frequency (RF) industrial wireless performance degradation factors (i.e., aggressors); a reference test architecture for the performance evaluation of industrial wireless systems; a transparent performance assessment process for test planning, evaluation, and reporting; and instructions for establishing profiles to tailor the process for specific industries, applications, and scenarios. The standard applies to all wireless networks for use in industrial settings in which reliability and latency concerns are important to the functioning of the underlying operational systems. Performance degradation factors considered include physical and electromagnetic forms of wireless signal degradation. The standard does not cover the specifics of hardware implementations, the underlying algorithms used to produce RF aggressors, or how the industrial wireless networks being evaluated operate within the specified test environments.

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No Superseded Standards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No Inactive-Withdrawn Standards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
