Abstract: If we compare wireless communication over wired communication, wireless communication offer more advantages when compared to wired communication such as lower cost, fast deployment, higher flexibility & scalability and mobile nature of system communicated wirelessly. In Industrial automation, industrial communication has very challenging requirements like packet deadline, low transmission jitter, etc. In some places wired communication is only accepted and it cannot be replaced by wireless communication. Industrial applications also run more flexible requirements applications such as email, Video content or any other application. Those services are known as Best Effort (BE) services. In order to do both the industrial application and BE services we have proposed Zigbee communication together with the IEEE 802.11 standard in this article along with comparison between the two standards using physical layer solutions. This Zigbee communication is performed using a industrial automation design and it leads to less power consumption. Result and analysis in terms of real time services is left as a future work in this paper. It is proposed that through Zigbee solution it is possible to obtain better result in certain cases than those achieved using IEEE 802.11 standards.
