Interference and Coexistence of Bluetooth and Wireless Systems


Interference occurs frequently in wireless communication systems, where multiple devices transmit simultaneously over a common channel. To design reliable systems ensuring high quality of service (QoS), engineers need to develop efficient interference handling mechanisms.

In this webinar, you will learn about the interference and coexistence of WLAN and Bluetooth systems both at the PHY level and at the system level. We will showcase how you can model wireless networks in MATLAB and study the impact of interference through KPIs such as throughput and latency. Finally, we will do deep dives into a few collaborative and non-collaborative coexistence methodologies, discuss various mitigation strategies and walkthrough of several reference examples. 


  • Introduction to WLAN and Bluetooth toolboxes.
  • Coexistence – building scenarios and simulating networks.
  • Non-collaborative coexistence including Adaptive frequency hopping.
  • Characterizing good and bad channel in Bluetooth links.
  • Collaborative coexistence including Packet traffic arbitration.

Please allow approximately 45 minutes to attend the presentation and Q&A session. We will be recording this webinar, so if you can't make it for the live broadcast, register and we will send you a link to watch it on-demand.
