Indoor downlink communication contributes to a large part of the data traffic generated in today’s world. Enormous high data rate supporting devices are entering todays market. They demand for high rate wireless indoor coverage for their uninterrupted service. The main challenge lies in working with the existing wireless technologies while providing a future proof centralized optical fiber indoor backhaul for efficient indoor coverage. Fiber to the room paradigm is gaining a lot of attention in this regard. For supporting high data rates indoor, multiuser MIMO (MU-MIMO) is definitely a prominent choice. While quality of service serves as the most attractive feature that should be ensured among the mobile terminals (MTs). In this work we propose a throughput fair successive signal to leakage and noise ratio (SLNR) precoding algorithm for such a fiberwireless (Fi-Wi) MU-MIMO indoor. The network capacity and individual MT data rate for our proposed scheme are compared against the greedy SLNR scheme and a random selection based SLNR precoding scheme. The Jains fairness index value for our scheme is shown to achieve maximal fairness.
