In today's scenario as the usage of ISM band is increasing rapidly there are many scenarios where the authors need communication systems like Wireless Local Area Networks (WLANs) based on IEEE 802.11b specifications and Wireless Personal Area Networks (WPANs) based on IEEE 802.15.4 specifications coexisting in the same place. In case of such coexistent heterogeneous networks they have performance degradation. In this paper, they propose a new scheme using channel scheduling for enhancing the performance of the networks. To evaluate the effectiveness of the proposed scheme, the performance metrics such as throughput, average end-end delay and average jitter is measured using Qualnet 4.5 simulation software.
