We analyze the capacity scaling laws of wireless ad hoc networks comprising significant inhomogeneities in the node spatial distribution over the network area. In particular, we consider nodes placed according to a shot-noise Cox process, which allows to model the clustering behavior usually recognized in large-scale systems. For this class of networks, we introduce novel techniques to compute upper bounds to the available per-flow throughput as the number of nodes tends to infinity, which are tight in the case of interference limited systems.
