KYOCERA SLD Laser, Inc. (KSLD), a world leader in commercialization of laser light sources, has announced the achievement of the world’s fastest LiFi system that delivers greater than 90 gigabit per second (90 Gbps), 100 times faster data rate than 5G. The company will will demonstrate its award winning DataLightTM innovation for automotive and consumer applications at the Consumer Electronics Show January 5 – 7, 2022.

“We are thrilled to announce KSLD’s achievement of world record LiFi data rate of 90 Gbps and our demonstration of this DataLight innovation at CES 2022 in our exhibition booth,” stated Dr James Raring, CEO of Kyocera SLD Laser. “To pioneer the future of lighting and wireless connectivity, our ultra-high speed LiFi technology is eye-safe, impervious to ambient lighting, secure, efficient, and RF-free. KSLD is commercializing LiFi solutions for customers in mobility applications, automotive, and undersea, as well as RF-sensitive environments such as airplane cabins, smart factories, healthcare, secure government facilities, and smart cities.”

“This demonstration marks a significant milestone toward showcasing the full potential of LiFi. A foundation of our future digital world is the capability to transmit huge amounts of data. This can only be done effectively if we have big enough and affordable data pipes. My team at the LiFi Research and Development Centre (LRDC) and I are very proud of this remarkable achievement using the unique KSLD LaserLight devices,” stated Harald Haas, distinguished Professor and KSLD Senior Advisor Harald Haas, widely known as the inventor of LiFi.

KSLD’s DataLight LiFi innovation utilizes its award winning dual-emission visible and infrared LaserLightTM sources. These sources enable customers to commercialize potent intelligent illumination systems including functionality of spatially dynamic lighting, night vision illumination, accurate sensing and 3D LIDAR, as well as optical power transmission. DataLight engines can be configured for customer specific applications and have exciting potential to be performance optimized using artificial intelligence and machine learning.

KYOCERA SLD Laser will host meetings in person at CES 2022 in West Hall Exhibition Booth 3423 and virtually by appointment. To schedule an appointment, please contact Kristen Hanna at
