This paper examines the success of RF filtering on mitigating interference that occurs between two wireless multiple-access systems operating within the same geographic area. Such interference is referred to as "competitor-induced interference" and can significantly degrade system capacity and performance. Three dual-system scenarios are considered: a dual code-division multiple-access (CDMA) (IS-95) system, a CDMA mobile in an FM (AMPS) cell, and an FM mobile in a CDMA cell.
