The Coexistence of 802.11b/g and Bluetooth: An Experimental Comparison in LoS Conditions

Free registration required

Executive Summary

This paper presents experimental results for TCP throughput performance of the IEEE 802.11b/g standard in the presence of Bluetooth (BT) interference. The throughput of an IEEE 802.11b/g network is measured in a LoS environment. The results demonstrate that 802.11g is substantially more sensitive to BT interference than 802.11b. Currently, the trend towards indoor internet distribution in libraries, airports, hotels, conference centres and home environments is based on the use of Wireless Local Area Network (WLAN) technologies. The most widely used WLAN standards are developed by the IEEE and identified as the IEEE 802.11 standards for wireless connectivity. They are usually deployed as a wireless extension for broadband access to the network.
