Timely delivery of critical traffic is a major challenge in industrial applications. The Wireless Dominance (WiDOM) medium access control protocol offers a very large number of priority levels to suit time sensitive application requirements. In particular, assuming that its overhead is properly modeled, WiDOM enables an accurate evaluation of the network response time in the wireless domain, through the power of the schedulability analysis, based on non-preemptive and staticpriority scheduling. Recent research proposed a new version of WiDOM (dubbed Slotted WiDOM), which offers a lower overhead as compared to the original version. In this paper, we propose a new schedulability analysis for Slotted WiDOM and extend it to handle message streams with release jitter. In order to provide a more accurate timing analysis, the effect of transmission faults must be taken into account. Therefore, in our novel analysis we consider the case where messages are transmitted in a realistic wireless channel, affected by noise and interference. Evaluation is performed on a real test-bed and the results from experiments provide a firm validation of our findings.
