In the last years, wireless communications in industrial scenarios are becoming an increasingly important market. Some of these communications have tight reliability requirements, but harsh propagation conditions in industrial scenarios represent a major challenge. In this paper, multi-connectivity is explored as a solution for assuring high reliability in industrial scenarios. Several multi-connectivity techniques are compared, using real channel measurements from two factories. Multi-connectivity comes at the cost of a reduced throughput in the mobile broadband services on the same network. In this paper, this impact is quantified to assess for the cost of implementing multi-connectivity.
