Abstract: Prerequisites for the field communications networks in the process industries include effective support for hybrid traffic, durability, availability, reliability, security, and scalability in a harsh industrial environment. Moreover, the establishment of such a network on a license-free scale raises worries regarding its security, safety, functioning and service quality (QoS). Quality of Service relates to the management of network resources and the provision of services required by the application by controlling delay, jitter, packet loss rate and bandwidth. To develop an industrial-strength wireless network that can handle stringent process automation requirements, impose restrictions on network design that includes hardware and software components used. To achieve the quality of service required, a broad view of systems must be seen as the overall performance of network-based applications based on the operation, interaction and collaboration of individual components. To achieve the perceived network, various problems are dealt with. As part of this research, three specific issues were addressed: time synchronization problem in distributed systems, closed-loop control on a resource-constrained wireless network, and transmission power monitoring (TPC) in wireless field nodes. They address the problem of limited resources available in distributed field nodes with a view to maximizing the use of available resources. This will be explained in detail later. Recent developments in wireless communications technologies creating new opportunities for wireless communication to field equipment in industries such as gas and oil, bulk water distribution and chemical processing. Wireless communications can help the above industries improve factory knowledge by getting complementary, measurements of operations and devices when wired communication is not allowed. The operational field communications network requirements include active support for hybrid traffic, durability, reliability, safety, and scalability in the industrial environment of harsh. Moreover, the establishment of such a network on a scale that does not carry any license raises worries regarding its security, safety, functioning and governance.
