Most companies operate a wireless network as a part of their business infrastructure. They are often reliable and extend the enterprise’s scope beyond their wired network, but they are not perfect. Concerns about radio interference and security have always plagued wireless networks, so network vendors are looking to the future of wireless communications. One advancementRead more
Passive and active sensors that detect low-frequency (audio) to the invisible (Radar, Lidar and Thermal) to cameras, will be central to creating autonomous vehicles that yield safer driving. Similarly, outward communications, whether via dynamic signage, audio blasts or some other means, to the humans walking, riding or driving the streets is critical for mobility machinesRead more
The world never settles for less and how? By discovering avant-garde technologies that make our lives much at ease. Today, you can’t imagine your world without an internet connection. From booking a cab to searching the net on how to do basically anything, the internet is your sole savior! Be it your work or yourRead more
When industry stakeholders started considering how Li-Fi might be deployed in aircraft cabins, certain naysayers predicted that the cons would outweigh the pros, and we’d be lucky to see it roll out in our lifetime. Li-Fi leverages light to send information, in contrast to Wi-Fi, which uses radio waves. Though it has proven capable ofRead more
The Astronics stand is showing a pureLiFi system in Hamburg that could be used to quickly transfer data to and from aircraft at the gate via light. The Gatelink pureLiFi system uses light instead of radio waves to connect devices for fast data transfer. “Get Connected” first wrote about this technology back in 2016 whenRead more
aeroLiFi is demonstrating the ability of LiFi to stream video to multiple screens. LiFi uses both the visible and invisible light emitted by LEDs to transmit IFE data and an internet connection. Therefore, access points can continue working during the plane’s local night, and every LED bulb is a potential access point.
5G phones and the gigabit speeds you can hope to enjoy dominated headlines at this year’s Mobile World Congress, but another demo, the transmission of similar levels of bandwidth over visible light using modified LED bulbs, caught our eye at MWC 2019.
