Wireless networks have invaded into every aspect of our life, from small piconets to larger networks connecting big areas together. Industrial environments are not the exception, as primitive wireless devices have been used for a long time for machinery control. On the other hand, wireless data networks such as 802.11 networks, are rapidly taking their place inside such environments replacing the traditional cables. Our attempt is based on this concept and we propose solutions which manage to reduce the effects of some of the common problems a WLAN has to face inside an industrial environment. Network segregation utilizing multichannel enabled nodes proves to gives adequate results when tested inside a harsh-industrial- environment. One the main advantage of network segregation is the multiple paths that are created. Network performance is the primary key always in accordance of the noise level and the results from our simulations satisfy our expectations.
