The LiFi Technology

Everything you need to know about #Lifi technology! #innovation #IoT

  • Imagine a world where every one of the billions of lightbulbs in use today is a wireless hotspot delivering connectivity at speeds that can only be dreamed of with Wi-Fi.
  • Invented by Suat TOPSU in 2005, LiFi technology for “Light Fidelity” is a new method to connect wirelessly mobile devices and other connected devices using LED lights.
  • Oledcomm used a Li-Fi-enabled lightbulb to transmit data at speeds as fast as 50 megabit per second (Mbps), which is about 10 times faster than current Wi-Fi technology.
  • The progressive replacement of the 14 billion light points in the world by LEDs makes LiFi a strong candidate to become the 3rd generation communication network (after the wired network and the radio network) and potentially the densest.
  • The technology has became an international standard for wireless communication in its first version in November 2011 by the International Telecommunications Standardisation Committe.

Imagine a world where every one of the billions of lightbulbs in use today is a wireless hotspot delivering connectivity at speeds that can only be dreamed of with Wi-Fi.

Invented by Suat TOPSU in 2005, LiFi technology for “Light Fidelity” is a new method to connect wirelessly mobile devices and other connected devices using LED lights.

Oledcomm used a Li-Fi-enabled lightbulb to transmit data at speeds as fast as 50 megabit per second (Mbps), which is about 10 times faster than current Wi-Fi technology. Laboratory tests have shown theoretical speeds of 224 Gigabit per second (Gbps), meaning a high-definition film could be downloaded within seconds.

The progressive replacement of the 14 billion light points in the world by LEDs makes LiFi a strong candidate to become the 3rd generation communication network (after the wired network and the radio network) and potentially the densest.

The technology has became an international standard for wireless communication in its first version in November 2011 by the International Telecommunications Standardisation Committe.

GEOLIFI® modules are dedicated to supplement GPS, BLE and iBeacon…

Implemented inside your LED lighting or as an external module, it turns your lighting system into a powerful indoor positioning engine.

Geofencing, which allows to know when a person enters a certain zone.
