In this paper, an architecture of MIMO mesh network which avoids co-channel interference and supplies link multiplexing simultaneously, namely MIMO spatial spectrum sharing, is proposed. As a MIMO transmission scheme, linear (such as zero-forcing) and nonlinear (such as dirty paper coding and successive interference cancellation) MIMO algorithm are developed for the proposed mesh network. It is found from numerical analysis that the proposed MIMO mesh network achieves significantly higher channel capacity than that of conventional mesh networks.
