Abstract

The emergence of several radio technologies such as Bluetooth, and IEEE 802.11 operating in the 2.4 GHz unlicensed ISM frequency band may lead to signal interference and result in significant performance degradation when devices are co-located in the same environment. The main goal of this paper is to present a performance evaluation of these radio systems sharing the same air space based on an integrated MAC and PHY simulation model. Our results focus on the impact of interference on Bluetooth and IEEE 802.11. We use several simulation scenarios and measure performance in terms of packet loss, residual number of errors, and access delay.
