On the Capacity Bounds for Poisson Interference Channels
The Poisson interference channel, which models optical communication systems with multiple transceivers, is investigated. Conditions for the strong interference regime are characterized and the corresponding capacity region is derived, which is the same as that of the compound Poisson multiple access channel with each receiver decoding both messages. For the cases when the strong interference conditions are not satisfied, inner and outer bounds on the capacity region are derived. The inner bound is derived via approximating the Poisson interference channel by a binary interference channel and then evaluating the corresponding Han-Kobayashi region.
