Estimation of BT Interference and Equivalent Channel Taps in OFDM Based WLANs in Multipath Fading Channel

One of the major sources of interference for WLANs operating in 2.4GHz unlicensed ISM is Bluetooth (BT). Though OFDM based WLAN's have features like strong immunity to multipath channel effects, its performance detoriates severely whenever there is BT operating nearby. Even for high SIR (Signal to Interference Ratio), performance does not improve much because WLAN is not able to estimate correctly all its channel parameters in presence of BT interference. So, in this paper, the authors propose an algorithm for estimating BT interference and equivalent channel filter tap values.
