As more and more wireless communication scenarios, such as Internet of Things and 4G wireless networks, rely on the deployment of wire-line networks, the analysis of the heterogeneous wired-wireless networks becomes critical. In this paper, the Probability Mass Function (PMF) of the number of hops in heterogeneous wired and wireless networks is analyzed. The nodes are assumed to be spatially distributed following Poisson Point Process (PPP). The wireless links are formed by considering the spatial distances, and the wired links are randomly deployed.
