This paper introduces a novel approach to evaluate the performance of ad hoc networks based on their spatial capacity, defined as the maximum spatial spectral efficiency supported by the network while a zero outage probability is guaranteed for all communication links. Specifically, the spatial capacity together with upper and lower bounds is derived in closed-form for networks where transmitters follow a Poisson point process and their respective receivers are located at a fixed distance. In this paper, the spatial capacity is achieved using a rate adaptation technique that adjusts the link spectral efficiency in accordance with the distance between the receivers and their closest interferers.
