Open Access research with a European policy impact...

The Strathprints institutional repository is a digital archive of University of Strathclyde's Open Access research outputs. Strathprints provides access to thousands of Open Access research papers by Strathclyde researchers, including by researchers from the European Policies Research Centre (EPRC).

EPRC is a leading institute in Europe for comparative research on public policy, with a particular focus on regional development policies. Spanning 30 European countries, EPRC research programmes have a strong emphasis on applied research and knowledge exchange, including the provision of policy advice to EU institutions and national and sub-national government authorities throughout Europe.

Abstract

A physical layer performance evaluation of WLAN (IEEE 802.11b) and Zigbee (IEEE 802.15.4) receivers in the presence of impulsive noise is presented. Broadband impulsive noise is modeled as a Symmetric Alpha-Stable process. The parameters of the impulsive noise model are estimated from data recorded from an electricity transmission substation (ETS). The results show that the performance degradation of the Zigbee receiver is small whilst the WLAN receiver may suffer more significant degradation
