Bluetooth systems results in unintentional interference to OFDM systems using industry, science and medical (ISM) band. In this letter, the performance degradation of orthogonal frequency division multiplexing (OFDM) systems from Bluetooth interference is numerically analyzed. Bluetooth interference is modeled on partial band jamming with rectangular spectrum. Bit error probability (BEP) performance based on the effective signal to noise power ratio (SNR) is provided for OFDM systems in Rayleigh fading channels in addition to AWGN. Additionally, coding gain over Bluetooth interference is evaluated for OFDM-based wireless local area network (WLAN) in IEEE802.11g.
