This paper relies on a characteristic function based approach to compute the level crossing rate and average outage duration of interference-limited wireless communication systems. The analytical results are quite general and are applicable to systems in which users are subject to non-identically distributed Rician fading. These results are confirmed by Monte Carlo simulations and some numerical examples are discussed and interpreted.
