In this paper, the packet error rate (PER) of IEEE 802.15.4 under the interference of a saturated IEEE 802.11b network is evaluated using an analytic model when IEEE 802.15.4 and IEEE 802.11b coexist. The PER is obtained from the bit error rate (BER) and the collision time, where the BER is obtained from the signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio. The analytic results are validated using simulations.
