This paper is to show new possibilities of wireless communication for mobile industrial sensors in the real time. The network topology, signal modulations and industrial Ethernet protocol are discussed here. The authors have been focusing their research on real time communication of wireless sensors. Distance of sensors could be more than 30 meters and there is possibility to communication on different frequencies. The presented communication gateway is a one part of the whole wireless sensors network. The gateway provides communication by various industrial protocols common communication language. Furthermore, they based their wireless communication system on 2x2 MIMO design. This solution offers significant increases in data throughput and link range without additional bandwidth or transmit power.
