ISA100 Wireless standard has various parts in development, focusing on varied industrial needs. Honeywell is developing products for the ISA100.11a standard, company says.

With end-users active on the committee, Honeywell says that ISA100:

- Provides a comprehensive plant-wide approach to meeting their requirements for best lifecycle management and reliability.
- Provides optimal battery usage to save lifecycle costs, with backbone routing and optional routing function for devices.
- Accommodates different protocols with technology such as protocol mapping, smart tunneling, and tunneling, so any device can connect to any host efficiently and effectively. That connectivity protects end-users' current investments in application hosts and devices.
- Is committed to security and reliability.
