This paper presents an exact analysis of co-channel interference (CCI) in a shadowed-Nakagami (desired)/shadowed-Rician (interfering) channel. Because a Rician distribution can be closely approximated by a Nakagami distribution [1], the proposed analysis can be also viewed as a close approximation of a shadowed-Rician (desired)/shadowed-Rician (interfering) model. The model provided in this paper includes many flexibilities - different Rice factors, different shadowing spreads, and different transmitted powers for desired and interfering signals. Therefore, it is a powerful tool for determining cell sizes and power levels in mixed micro/macro cellular systems.
