English abstract:
IEEE 802.15.4 is a well-accepted standard for realizing
wireless control networks. Besides the immediate use by an
application, many industrial automation and building automation
technologies are based on this standard. However, wireless
networks have significant drawbacks. One major drawback is the
range, since many automation systems are spread over a wide
area or are even located in different facilities. In some cases,
gateways are used to bridge the wireless clusters. However, a
gateway strongly depends on the application.
This paper introduces a transparent backbone for seamless
communication in IEEE 802.15.4. The proposed solution is
capable of connecting a large number of wireless clusters. The
concept does not depend on a specific backbone medium. It only
requires a pairwise connection among all backbone nodes. Thus,
any fieldbus protocol or even Ethernet (IP) can be used. Since
many applications are safety-critical, the backbone allows placing
two or more wireless interfaces in one cluster and tolerates faults
of backbone devices.
