|The channel capacity of wireless networks is often studied under the assumption that the communicating nodes have perfect channel-state information and that interference is always present. In this paper, we study the channel capacity of a wireless network without these assumptions, i.e., a bursty noncoherent wireless network, where the users are grouped in cells and the base-station features several receive antennas. We obtain that the channel capacity is bounded in the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) when the number of receive antennas is finite and the probability of presence of interference is strictly positive.
