This paper addresses questions of using wireless mesh networks (WMNs) in heterogeneous industrial infrastructures. This implies several problems like global addressing, handling of QoS requirements, interconnection with embedded networks. Our proposed solution is a publish/subscribe middleware. We discuss how it solves the mentioned problems. Real-world measurements and simulation results give an idea of QoS properties. A case study of controlling a mobile robot is presented. The results show that the middleware is well suited for non-critical control and monitoring tasks.
