Abstract: The current industrial revolution is the industry 4.0. One of its main aims is the replacement of old communication that uses wired links with new communication that is wireless communication. The main reason to move to wireless communication is to improve the mobility, reduce the deployment cost, reduce cable damage and to improve the scalability. To do this, the type of industrial application needs to be taken into consideration. The proposed communication protocol must support low loss rate and must be robust. This is one of the main challenges faced by industrial automation due to interference with other communication devices and reflection with metallic objects in industries. The current industrial revolution is the 4.0 industrial revolution which combines different technologies such as Internet of Things (IOT), robotics, virtual reality and artificial intelligence. The second aim of this paper is to connect devices to IOT so as to improve the accessibility of the industry from anywhere in the world. Apart from communication protocol and IOT, the other services running simultaneously are web browser, email, video or other services. These services are known as Best Effort services. So this communication protocol not only improves power efficiency of the sensors but also it runs the Best Effort services. The proposed protocol to be used is ZigBee communication protocol along with the IOT service. IOT connect anything on the internet using a specified protocol with sensors, devices, equipment to transfer the information & to communicate among devices intelligently to achieve smart monitoring and administration.
