ZigBee (IEEE 802.15.4) and WiFi (IEEE 802.11) coexistence simulation model in MATHLAB / Simulink

5 views (last 30 days)
Hi, I`m Azizul Lau. I`m currently doing research related to ZigBee and WiFi coexistence problem. I`m still doing survey to find suitable simulator tool for my research. Is it possible to do simulation for coexistence issue between ZigBee and WiFi in term of physical and MAC layer using MATHLAB / Simulink ? If can, is there any tutorial i can refer related to my research.
That`s all, Thank You

Hi, Azizul
I am a student and I want to do a simulation related to ZigBee and WiFi coexistence problem too. Could you please assist me if you solved the same problem?

In R2017a, the Communications System Toolbox Library for the ZigBee Protocol is available in MATLAB. This library vertically spans the entire IEEE 802.15.4 / ZigBee stack (PHY, MAC, NET and APP layers).
The offered asynchronous IEEE 802.15.4 MAC is very similar to the basic IEEE 802.11a/b/g MAC. You can use this library as a basis that can be modified to study coexistence between ZigBee and Wifi.
To download this library, you can navigate in the MATLAB toolstrip -> Add-Ons -> Get Add-Ons -> Search for "Communications System Toolbox Library for the ZigBee Protocol".
Best,

As of R2023b, the content in the Communications Toolbox™ Library for ZigBee® and UWB has been absorbed into Communications Toolbox. With that release or later, you no longer need to download the library.
