The 802.11n networks with MIMO technique provide a spatial degree of freedom for dealing with co-channel interference. In this letter, our proposed spatial interference coordination scheme is achieved by distributed precoding for the downlink and distributed multi-user detection for the uplink. Simulation results validate the proposed scheme in terms of the downlink and uplink maximum achievable rates at each AP.
