Performance Evaluation of an Alternative Controller for Bluetooth Service Discovery
Bluetooth is a short range radio technology to form a small wireless system. It is used in low - cost, low power ad-hoc networks and it suffers from long service discovery delay and high power consumption. Bluetooth employs the 2.4 GHz ISM band, sharing the same bandwidth with the wireless LAN implementing the IEEE 802.11 standards. Thus it causes significantly lower interference. For improving the efficiency of SDP, the authors present an implementation of Bluetooth 2.1 in the NS-2 simulator, discuss the IEEE 802.11b as a Bluetooth controller and propose a new alternative Bluetooth controller based on adaptive frequency hopping techniques using amplifier power.
