The objective of this paper is to evaluate the impacts of impulsive class-A noise, co-channel interference due to other piconet, Rician fading on the packet error rate (PER), and throughput performance in the Bluetooth scatternet. Simulation results illustrate the significant difference in performance between synchronous and asynchronous Bluetooth systems. The paper also provides the insights on how to design Bluetooth scatternet for minimal PER and maximum throughput performance.
