Attempts to satisfy the demand for ubiquitous communications have resulted in a proliferation of hand-held short range communication devices based on the ISM (Industrial, Scientific, Medical) band technologies, most notably Bluetooth and IEEE 802.11b. However , coexistence between Bluetooth and IEEE 802.11b has become a critical issue that could severely(More)
Due to the proliferation of hand-held short-range communication devices, coexistence between Bluetooth and IEEE 802.11b has become a performance critical issue. In this study, we performed an actual implementation of a Linux based network access point (NAP), in which Bluetooth and IEEE 802.11b are colocated. Such a NAP is expected to be crucial in(More)
Bluetooth is a short range operating technology that helps in the exchange of data. Faster and efficient communications using a Bluetooth device is mandatory, since it has resource limitations. Service discovery delays pose a major problem when considering the Bluetooth devices. Our paper provides a comparative study that discusses efficient mechanisms to(More)
