Executive Summary

With the increasingly deployed Wireless Personal Area Network (WPAN) devices, channel conflict has become very frequent and severe when one WPAN technology coexists with other WPAN technologies in the same interfering range. In this paper, the authors study the coexistence issue between various IEEE 802.15 based WPAN technologies. This paper present analytical model on the non-conflicting channel allocation probabilities, focusing on the coexistence scenarios of one WPAN technology coexisting with another. The results show that channel allocation conflicts occurs frequently in all cases, and is especially severe between IEEE 802.15.3 and IEEE 802.15.4 networks.
