Reducing Bluetooth Interference with Diversity Techniques in IEEE 802.11b Networks
2002 (English)In: Proceedings Nordic Signal Processing Symposium, 2002Conference paper (Refereed)
Lately different kinds of wireless networks have become more frequently used. If they occupy the same frequency band they are likely to interfere with each other. In this paper, we examine how spatial diversity can be exploited to suppress Bluetooth interference on a IEEE 802.11b network. Two dual antenna receivers, the maximum ratio combining (MRC) and the interference rejection combining (IRC) methods, have been evaluated and compared to the ordinary single antenna receiver. Simulation results show that adding spatial diversity yields a signicant reduction in biterror rate (BER) and as a consequence the throughput is increased, especially for larger fragment sizes.
