Recently applications and technologies utilizing the free industrial, scientific, and medical (ISM) band have grown exponentially. Mainly there are three dominant technologies operating at the ISM 2.4 GHz band, IEEE 802.11 b/g, Bluetooth and IEEE 802.15.4 or Zigbee. With the diverse deployment and broad range of applications running over such technologies, it is inevitable that radio channel interference between devices utilizing such technologies exist. In this chapter we focus on co-existence issues between such technologies and on the quantification of the impact of Bluetooth on IEEE 802.11b/g.
