Several distributed coordinated precoding methods relying on over-the-air (OTA) iterations in time-division duplex (TDD) networks have recently been proposed. Each OTA iteration incurs overhead, which reduces the time available for data transmission. In this work, we therefore propose an algorithm which reaches good sum rate performance within just a few number of OTA iterations, partially due to non-overhead-incurring local iterations at the receivers. We formulate a scalarized multi-objective optimization problem where a linear combination of the weighted sum rate and the multiplexing gain is maximized. Using a well-known heuristic for smoothing the optimization problem together with a linearization step, the distributed algorithm is derived. When numerically compared to the state-of-the-art in a scenario with 1 to 3 OTA iterations allowed, the algorithm shows significant sum rate gains at high signal-to-noise ratios.
