The integration of satellite-terrestrial networks is beneficial in terms of the increase of the network capacity and coverage. In such a heterogeneous network, highly efficient spectrum utilization is extremely important. This could be achieved by the single frequency reuse which allows increasing the capacity at the cost of increased interference. Interference is one of the main parameters that limits the link-level performance in such a network. In this paper, we examine the frequency reuse scenario by analyzing the impact of terrestrial interference to the uplink of a low Earth orbiting (LEO) satellite constellation in the high International Mobile Telecommunications (IMT) frequency bands. To this end, we propose a novel stochastic geometry based analytical framework that is able to accommodate various aspects of realistic satellite networks. The accuracy of the analysis is verified by using advanced simulation tools.
