In this paper, the authors analyse the joint impact of pathloss, shadowing and fast fading on wireless networks. Taking into account the pathloss and the shadowing, they first express the SINR distribution of a mobile located at a given distance from its serving Base-Station (BS). The moments of this distribution are easily computed, using the Fenton-Wilkinson method, and a fluid model that considers the cellular network as a continuum of BS. Then considering the joint impact of pathloss, shadowing and fast fading, they derive an easily computable outage probability formula, for a mobile located at any distance from its serving BS.
