The capacity of a network in which a multiple access channel (MAC) generates interference to a single-user channel is studied. An achievable rate region based on superposition coding and joint decoding is established for the discrete case. If the interference is strong, the capacity region is obtained for both the discrete memoryless channel and Gaussian channel. A boundary point of the capacity region is determined for a subclass of Gaussian channels with mixed interference.
