We outline a general method for modelling the capacity of a MIMO link within a wireless, assuming that capacity of a link is a random function of SNR and signal to interference ratio (SIR), since the maximum link throughput depends on the random channel of both the user's signal and the interference. We show how a look-up table for the CDF of this random function can be obtained by link-level simulation in the presence of interference having the same characteristics as the interference found in the target network. We also exploit the Truncated Shannon Bound (TSB) to estimate the resulting capacity obtained in practice in a system using adaptive modulation and coding on the link level.
