This paper presents a derivation of the probability distribution function (pdf) of the aggregate interference in a secondary access network where multiple secondary users cause interference to a single primary user. The derivation considers a practical interference protection mechanism that the transmission of each secondary user is regulated by an interference threshold. Analytic pdf of the interference from a secondary user is obtained. Then, the distribution of the aggregate interference is approximated based on it cumulates. The derived pdf shows a good agreement with Monte Carlo simulation.
