##article.abstract##

The subject of the research within the scope of this paper is integrated wired and wireless communication technologies in the process industry, with the aim of keeping up with the world trends in this field, and refers to the following activities. First, a brief overview of the historical development will be provided and the technical characteristics of the industrial protocols that have the greatest application in industrial communication networks will be described. Then, necessary steps to integrate wireless technology within an existing facility with wired devices already installed will be presented. At the end of this paper, the integration of wireless technologies in implementing industrial communication networks will be proposed, which will be verified by analysing the results obtained in a feasibility study for introducing an integrated network model in a real facility in a sugar refinery in Brčko.
