How to calculate the duty-cycle of a WiFi signal in WLAN toolbox?
30 views (last 30 days)
I just checked out the BLE coexistence model with WLAN signal interference (https://www.mathworks.com/help/comm/ug/ble-coexistence-model-with-wlan-signal-interference.html) and wondering what is the duty-cycle of WLANs' signals?
The helperBLEWLANSignalTrafficConfig object is used to model the WLAN traffic. Is there any way that we can change the duty-cycle of each WLAN network as a configuration parameter? If not, knowing the interference start time and interference end time in the specified WLAN channel, how can we calculate the duty cycle of the signal?
Thanks in advance!

Hello Susan,Duty cycle is the fraction of one period in which a signal or system is active. In the BLE coexistence model with WLAN signal interference example, WLAN traffic is not given as a periodic signal where it turns on and off, but in turn given as a signal which would be active completely for the total duration of the wlanInterferencePeriod. To have a particular WLAN network on for different duration of time, you can increase the WLAN networks count and specify their respective start and end time.
