Communication in a Poisson Field of Interferers - Part II: Channel Capacity and Interference Spectrum
In their previous paper, the authors presented a mathematical model for communication subject to both network interference and noise, where the interferers are scattered according to a spatial Poisson process, and are operating asynchronously in a wireless environment subject to path loss, shadowing, and multipath fading. They determined the distribution of the aggregate interference and the error performance of the link. In this paper, the authors characterize the capacity of the link subject to both network interference and noise. Then, they put forth the concept of Spectral Outage Probability (SOP), a new characterization of the aggregate radio-frequency emission generated by communicating nodes in a wireless network.
