In factory communication systems, wireless networks are likely to complement wired automation networks, rather than replacing them. There is therefore an in-creasing interest in the way wireless and wired systems will interact and form a hybrid network. The hybrid network architecture proposed in this paper specifically addresses WLAN infrastructures in industrial environ-ments. The paper discusses design challenges and de-scribes the proposed system architecture and its main components.
