This paper provides an analytical derivation of the probability density function of signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio in the scenario where mobile stations interfere with each other. This analysis considers cochannel interference and adjacent channel interference. This could also remove the need for Monte Carlo simulations when evaluating the interference effect between mobile stations. Numerical verification shows that the analytical result agrees well with a Monte Carlo simulation. Also, we applied analytical methods for evaluating the interference effect between mobile stations using adjacent frequency bands. The analytical derivation of the probability density function can be used to provide the technical criteria for sharing a frequency band.
