Zigbee/IEEE 802.15.4 with Aironet 1200's running 802.11a/b/g

All, Our engineers are looking at a industrial device that transmits Zigbee/IEEE 802.15.4. Does this interfere iwth Aironet's running 802.11?

Thank You.

I'm 99% sure that it does not.

First, the power levels are generally low, and it's spread spectrum / freq hopping, so the behaivior would be similar to Bluetooth.

If your Bluetooth and WiFi get along, then 802.15.4 should be fine.

I have some 802.15.4 demo kits running at home (next to my Cisco APs) and I'm not seeing any significant interference (of coursr, my wireless density is pretty low as well ... not a real test).

Good Luck

Scott
