This paper presents a proof-of-concept for Tb/s infrared (IR) indoor optical wireless networks. We introduce a novel double tier access point architecture based on array of arrays of vertical cavity surface emitting lasers (VCSELs) to deliver beyond Tb/s aggregate capacity. For a given indoor environment, the optimal access point architecture is designed. The downlink performance is analysed throughout the coverage area and the spatial distribution of signal-to-interference-plus-noise ratio (SINR) and data rate are obtained. Numerical results demonstrate that with a single access point in a 25 m2 indoor area, data rates of at least 10 Gb/s per beam are achieved almost everywhere and the aggregate data rate can exceed 2 Tb/s.
