The IEEE 802.15 Coexistence Task Group 2 (TG2) for Wireless Personal Area Networks developed a Recommended Practices to facilitate coexistence of Wireless Personal Area Networks™ (802.15) and Wireless Local Area Networks (802.11). The Task Group developed a Coexistence Model to quantify the mutual interference of a WLAN and a WPAN™. The Task Group also developed a set of Coexistence Mechanisms to facilitate coexistence of WLAN and WPAN™ devices.
