Abstract

In this paper, we investigate coexistence of collocated 802.11 and Bluetooth technologies in 2.4 GHz industrial, scientific, and medical (ISM) band. To that end, we show a time division multiplexing approach suffers from the “avalanche effect”. We then provide remedies to avoid this effect and improve the performance of the overall network. For example, it is shown that a simple request-to-send (RTS) / clear-to-send (CTS) frame handshake in WLAN can avoid “avalanche effect” and improve the performance of overall network.
