The technology of Internet of Things is gradually maturing. IoT has applied in many fields and extended to industrial networks. Thus, the IETF has proposed 6TiSCH (IPv6 over the TSCH mode of IEEE 802.15.4e) to establish the link between Internet and IWSNs (Industrial Wireless Sensor Networks). The main purpose of this research is to enhance the performance of Multi-hop 6TiSCH network by using the proposed Priority-based Fast Forward Scheduling Function (PFFSF). According to the simulation results, the proposed PFFSF has lower end-to-end transmission delay and higher throughput then the original 6TiSCH SF0 mechanism.
