Recent advances in wireless technology has led to the introduction of new devices utilizing the 2.4GHz Industrial Scientific and Medical (ISM) unlicensed band traditionally used by Wireless LAN (WLAN). The increasing demand of higher data rate in WLANs has prompted the continual emergence of different 802.11 protocols with increased performance. Interoperability and coexistence between these networks become key issues and must be catered for, to guarantee satisfactory performance of both networks. 802.11 refer to a family of specifications developed by the International Institute of Electrical Electronics Engineering (IEEE) for wireless LAN technology.
