Why LiFi Products are yet to Shed Light on India

October 4

Despite being a much speedier internet technology as compared to WiFi, LiFi implementations are yet to make any dent in India. Unlike WiFi or wireless fidelity that uses radio waves, LiFi or light fidelity is a wireless communication technology that uses light waves to provide an internet connection. It allows for much faster data transferRead more

LiFi Trial Frees Graemsay Residents from Slow Internet Service

August 26

Residents on the island of Graemsay, an island off the Orkney mainland, Scotland, are now using a LiFi network to access the internet instead of their slow and congestion prone fixed line copper network, thanks to the 5G RuralFirst rural connectivity testbed. Prior to the trial, which began in June, the island’s residents often sawRead more

Orkney 5G Trial Tests Li-Fi Wireless Broadband via Solar Panels

August 26

Now this really is unique. One of the Government funded 5G RuralFirst testbeds on Orkney (Scotland) appears to be delivering “high-speed” wireless broadband to a number of remote rural properties by using solar panels as receivers for a new Light Fidelity (LiFi) network (i.e. Li-Fi solar backhaul). LiFi is a Visible Light Communication (VLC) based networking technology,Read more

Li-Fi then LifiX: History Repeating Itself?

August 6

B.Bataillou1 , T.Merelle1, Davies W. de Lima Monteiro2 1 – Pi Lighting, Sion, Switzerland, 2- OptMAlab, Optronics & Microtechnologies, UFMG, Brazil The acceptance of Li-Fi technologies is getting some rapid momentum on the market.

Project ELIoT Readies LiFi for Mass Markets

August 5

Digital communication via modulated light signals has great commercial potential, experts believe: This LiFi – comparable to radio wave-based WiFi – promises high data rates and reliability at very short latencies, but has not yet a broad application base. The ELIoT research project is intended to change this. The future IoT will place significantly higherRead more

The Future of The Internet is… Streetlights?

August 5

Despite its apparent omnipresence, the internet is only available to around half of the world’s population. Whatever estimate you choose, billions are without the basic internet access we take for granted in more developed countries. This means that, if we are to achieve digital equality, these billions of people will need access. If you coupleRead more

Breakthrough in The Speed of LiFi Communications

July 31

LiFi is the optical analog of common WiFi, where light is used as the communications carrier instead of wireless RF transmission. Light is more easily physically confined than radio waves, as it does not pass through walls, curtains or other opaque surfaces. Visible Light Communications (VLC) or as it is commonly called, LiFi, allows muchRead more

LiFi: Past, Present and Future

July 19

Inventor of LiFi Harald Haas talks to Philip Mason about the origins of the solution, and why he believes it will solve the problem of finite RF spectrum in a data-hungry world As recent readers of Land Mobile will know, the digital communications sector is currently in a state of high anticipation, waiting for theRead more
