    Abstract

    We consider the proportional fair rate allocation in an 802.11 WLAN that supports multi-user MIMO (MU-MIMO) transmission by one or more stations. We characterise, for the first time, the proportional fair allocation of MU-MIMO spatial streams and station transmission opportunities. While a number of features carry over from the case without MU-MIMO, in general neither flows nor stations need to be allocated equal airtime when MU-MIMO is available.
