This paper presents a comparison of the current Wireless Sensor Network (WSN) standards that are available for industrial applications. Zigbee, WirelessHART and the recently released ISA.100 are carefully considered. The comparison outlines how WirelessHART and ISA.100 address some of the ZigBee weaknesses in the oil and gas domain.
