Beauty and the beast

The article discusses the factors behind the reluctance of the user community to adopt wired infrastructures. Users want to achieve interoperability and coexistence at various levels. The networks need to mimic the wired environment to aid transition. Wireless does not have the pedigree wired systems have in a system built on collected failure data. Security risk is viewed differently by an information technology (IT) professional and a control system network professional. Users remain skeptical about security. Another issue is compatibility. The IT and control factions are viewing wireless as non-deterministic and an external connection to the wired network.
