More recently, there has been a growing interest in cognitive techniques, which allow devices and even whole networks to monitor the environment in order to dynamically select and use the channel that affects the least interference. This paper aims at simulation of Bluetooth performance with IEEE 802.11b interference and determination of the Bit Error Rate (BER) using Advanced Design System (ADS). The paper which employed the Agilent Advance Design System 2011 (ADS 2011) as methodology reveals that the frequency offset and relative interference power of IEEE 802.11b with Bluetooth signal affect the Bluetooth network performance in terms of BER.
