Notice: As of 2014 and for the forthcoming years, the publication frequency/periodicity of WSEAS Journals is adapted to the 'continuously updated' model. What this means is that instead of being separated into issues, new papers will be added on a continuous basis, allowing a more regular flow and shorter publication times. The papers will appear in reverse order, therefore the most recent one will be on top.

ABSTRACT: Currently, the unlicensed ISM band (Industrial Scientific and Medical) 2.4 GHz is become saturated due many standards used at once. In agricultural production has ZigBee a lot of applications, from wireless sensors networks to complicated automation applications. This paper deals with improving the coexistence properties ZigBee (IEEE 802.15.4), while keeping compatibility with the basic standard. This paper describes principles and application of forward error correction above the physical layer, consisting of block data interleaver and Hamming code, and also the effect of improvements in coexistence with variously loaded WiFi 802.11g.
