We investigate the outage performance of an integrated satellite-terrestrial network undergoing hybrid co-channel interference (CCI), which comprises inter-component CCI from the satellite and intra-component CCI from adjacent base stations. Taking the interference power constraints imposed by satellite communications into account, we derive a closed-form expression for the outage probability (OP) of the terrestrial network, where the satellite link and terrestrial links are modeled as shadowed-Rician and Nakagami-m fading, respectively. Finally, simulation results demonstrate the validity of the theoretical analysis and show the effects of various key parameters on the OP performance.
