This paper evaluates the performance of wideband communication systems in the presence of narrowband interference (NBI). In particular, we derive closed-form bit-error probability expressions for spread-spectrum systems by approximating narrowband interferers as independent asynchronous tone interferers. The scenarios considered include additive white Gaussian noise channels, flat-fading channels, and frequency-selective multipath fading channels. For multipath fading channels, we develop a new analytical framework based on perturbation theory to analyze the performance of a Rake receiver in Nakagami-m channels. Simulation results for NBI such as GSM and Bluetooth are in good agreement with our analytical results, showing the approach developed is useful for investigating the coexistence of ultrawide bandwidth systems with existing wireless systems.
