In this paper, the authors investigate the problem of how much information can be transported over hybrid wireless networks, in which a wired network of base stations is deployed to support long-range communications between wireless nodes. This paper is the effect of fading on such hybrid wireless networks. To effectively overcome fading impairment, they introduce optimal multiple access technique allowing opportunistic sources to transmit concurrently with the scheduled source. All these sources share the entire bandwidth, much like a wideband CDMA system. A Successive Interference Cancelation (SIC) strategy is then applied at the receiver to limit the intra-cell interference and achieve the maximum capacity.
