As a low-power and low-cost technology, IEEE 802.15.4 is establishing its place on the market as an enabler for the emerging Wireless Sensor Networks (WSNs). Like IEEE 802.11b and 802.11 g, IEEE 802.15.4 is also used in the 2.4 GHz ISM band. Due to supporting complimentary applications, the people are very likely to be collocated within the interfering range of each other and therefore their ability to coexist needs to be evaluated. In this paper, the authors focus on the coexistence between these two major wireless standards that operate in the 2.4GHz ISM band.
