Coded caching (CC) schemes exploit the cumulative cache memory of network users, outperforming traditional uncoded schemes where cache contents are only used locally. Interestingly, this CC gain can also be combined with the spatial multiplexing gain of multi-antenna transmissions. In this paper, we extend the existing results of CC-aided data delivery in multi-access point (AP) wireless local area networks (WLAN) and video streaming applications by assuming multi-antenna transmitters at AP nodes. We present two distinct methods for using the extra resource that multi-antenna transmitters provide. While the first method tries to reduce the number of interference links in the network graph, the second one aims to remove inter-stream interference so that users with similar cache contents can be served simultaneously. While both methods provide increased throughput, they differ significantly in the underlying concept. Numerical simulations are used to compare the performance of different methods.
