About the ISA100 Standard
The ISA100.11a industrial wireless networking standard is the first in the ISA100 open family of standards. This wireless mesh network protocol standard ensures that supplier companies will build interoperable wireless automation control products and provides users the freedom to choose best-of-breed ISA100.11a field devices from any supplier. As a result, automation engineers are able to create, modify, optimize and scale wireless networks quickly at user sites. With ISA100, customers will have a solution that is open, interoperable, scalable and reliable for their most critical applications. The ISA100.11a global wireless standard ISA100 technology is simple to deploy, reliable and supports traditional and future applications.

Planned additions to the ISA100 family of standards include support for backhaul functionality, factory automation and other key-use cases. Details on the approved standard, the ISA100 roadmap and use-case presentations are available at
