The calculation of outage probability is discussed in relation to cochannel interference problems inherent in mature cellular radio systems. Outage probability equations for coverage only and for single cochannel interferer situations are reviewed briefly, and examples of the application of these results to the estimation of the service area of a typical cellular base station are given. An analytical technique for multiple uncorrelated interferers in a Rayleigh fading environment is presented and the effect of several cochannel Rayleigh interferers on the service area of a cellular base station is examined.
