    We devise a framework using tools from stochastic geometry and queuing theory for the study of irregular cellular networks when user traffic varies randomly in time and space. We consider a typical wireless cell with a guard zone surrounded by an interference environment comprised of a dominant node at the cell-edge plus an outer-bound Poisson field of sources. A systematic approach is presented to characterize the cell flow capacity in the presence of elastic data traffic with closed-form expressions of the intended signal power and aggregate interference statistics over Nakagami-m fading channels accordingly derived. We then formulate and solve an optimization problem for computing the traffic capacity defined as the maximum data flow intensity for which the cell remains unsaturated.
