Coexistence View: 802.11 and Bluetooth wireless technologies
Coexistence of packets between 802.11 data and Bluetooth data is possibly one of the most challenging tasks for wireless device developers. Knowing precise packet timing, size, location, frequency of each and every packet is essential to successfully developing and debugging devices using both technologies.
To see 802.11 packets together with Bluetooth (classic and low energy) packets you need to connect the ComProbe 802.11 analyzer together with the BPA 600 analyzer via ProbeSyncTM, a Frontline technology that allows two or more analyzers to share a common clock. Once connected you can see both technology together in one coexistence view.
The ComProbe 802.11 Protocol Analyzer includes unique characteristics that make viewing 801.11 packets and Bluetooth packets together in a single coexistence view possible. These are:
- Precise Packet Information and Timestamps
- Clock synchronization and sharing through ProbeSyncTM technology
In the coexistence view you can see both 802.11 and Bluetooth packets together and quickly identify / troubleshoot issues - live.
