The Internet of Things (IoT) is very promising concept with a potential to bring an enormous value nearly to all aspects of human’s life: from a personal life to a production process. The IoT implies the connection and data exchange of everything to everything through the Internet by using wireless or wired communication links. Successful data transmission and the reliability of communication links will be of great importance for the IoT networks. Particularly, steady and constant connection is vital for industrial sector, where, for example, environmentally dangerous leakages of oil might be prevented by real-time or nearly real-time infrastructure condition monitoring. Within a framework of this thesis, the usage of wireless links for providing the IoT devices with a radio access to the Internet in industrial environment has been studied. Thesis work proposes methodology of the IoT radio networks planning, it describes the main milestones and matters to pay attention to during this process. Besides, thesis work proposes a novel algorithm for automatic radio network planning, that can be applied for ensuring robust and reliable wireless connection between the IoT devices and the global network.
