In a pre-coded Multi User Multiple Input Multiple Output (MU-MIMO) system, the channelization can be done either by using any of the two basic access techniques, namely Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiple Access (OFDMA) and Space Division Multiple Access (SDMA), or by combining them. From resource allocation point of view, choice of any technique will require different fairness conditions among users. In this paper, we have studied these different fairness conditions when combined with basic

We have evaluated the resource allocation fairness issue when two well-known linear MU-MIMO precoding is used on a UTRA-LTE system. User grouping issue is dealt with when SDMA component is considered in the system. The results in this work provides an indicative analysis of the usability of different channelization techniques for considered system.
