Abstract: Wireless technologies are essential and important part of today’s world. Zigbee technology is one of them and getting more popularity due to its advantages like low power and low-cost reliability. It is operated on 2.4 GHz industrial scientific and medical band. On the same band, there is another standard which is 802.11n wifi standard is also operated. When both the technologies coexist together then there is interference occurs. As data rate of zigbee is very less compared to the wifi impact of interference is more on zigbee technology. In this work new features of channel bonding, frame aggregation and multiple input multiple output (MIMO) is applied to the 802.11n and effect of 802.11n on zigbee technology is measured using different performance metrics packet delivery ratio(PDR), bit error rate (BER), control overhead and throughput
