The Business of LiFi

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

EnLIGHTenment Magazine: The Lowdown on LiFi

June 27

  In case you haven’t heard of the term yet, “LiFi” is short for Light Fidelity and refers to the modulation of light in order to wirelessly stream data. It is similar to WiFi as the modulation of radio waves, which is light at an invisible wavelength. LiFi technology is also sometimes referred to asRead more
