In this paper, we investigate the cumulative distribution function (CDF) of the aggregate interference in CSMA/CA networks measured at an arbitrary time and position. We assume that nodes are deployed in an infinite two-dimensional plane by the Poisson point process (PPP). To find the effective active node density we analyze the distributed coordinate function (DCF) dynamics in a common sensing area and obtain the steady-state power distribution. The results of a massive simulation using Network Simulator-2 (NS-2) show a high correlation with the derived CDF.
