As the explosive growth of the ISM band usage continues, there are many scenarios where different systems operate in the same place at the same time. One of growing concerns is the coexistence of wireless systems [18]. For the successful deployment of mission-critical systems such as wireless sensor networks, it is required to provide a solution for the coexistence. In this paper, we propose a new scheme using multiple radio channels for the coexistence of 802.15.4 LRWPAN and 802.11b WLAN. To evaluate the effectiveness of the proposed scheme, measurement and simulation study are conducted. The simulation results show that the proposed scheme is effective in performance improvement for multi-hop largescale network of 802.15.4.
