LiFi For Education


LiFi technology has many applications and numerous use cases. The digital transformation in the education sector is a trend in all countries and sometimes even an obligation. The presentation will focus on the Education use case and why, how the LiFi represents a beneficial alternative to radiofrequencies inside the classroom.

ITU-T standard based technology augments spectrum usage and provides security enhancements that special use cases need. For schools, hospitals, airports, defense and government buildings and other cases where sensitive information can be a target of cyberattack, Li-Fi eliminates the risk of data interception by outsiders which are out of sight, therefore offering a vastly enhanced security platform which can be ensured using as reliable backbone.

Light Communication as a part of 5G and Beyond

deepak solanki

With internet users growing by the minute, comes the great challenge of ensuring faster speeds and higher bandwidths. 5G, the next wireless revolution, comes as a solution that can cater to the endlessly growing base of users. But 5G infrastructure requires denser deployments of small cells within cities having high backhaul capacity. The fibre optic cables can meet this demand but rolling out an extensive fibre network poses deployment complications. Laying down fibre is time consuming and costly process and makes expansion near impossible specifically in developing nations.

Taking LiFi mainstream


Mainstream LiFi is just on the horizon. LiFi’s security, safety and bandwidth advantages make it the right solution at the right time. LiFi is a wireless technology that uses light rather than radio frequencies to transmit data. By harnessing the light spectrum, LiFi can unleash faster, more reliable wireless communications with unparalleled security, compared to conventional technologies, such as cellular, WiFi and Bluetooth.

Fully leveraging LiFi capabilities through enhanced integration with 5G core and services

Maximilian Riegel

LiFi has superior capabilities compared to other licensed-exempt wireless technologies like Wi-Fi / IEEE 802.11. Current deployment models mainly treat LiFi like the common licensed-exempt technologies missing the possibility to fully exploit the potential performance of light communications.

Light becomes an intelligent language

ed huibers

by Ed Huibers, Signify

Signify is scaling the market for LiFi. Communication using light is useful for many applications, for instance in offices, industry or hospitality. But there is more, what if we could really innovate on other fields because of LiFi?


What drives you?
Being part of an very innovative company, the search possibilities of technology in a real market environment drives me. How do new ideas really improve our lives.

Why should the delegate attend your presentation?
LiFi technology is getting more known, but the next level, the next new application or use case, thats where I want to stimulate people to think about.

What emerging technologies/trends do you see as having the greatest potential in the short and long run?
Besides LiFi? Although IOT is not new, I like think that we are only at the beginning of utilizing this to improve the way we live, consume and interact.

What kind of impact do you expect them to have?
The IOT will help us make more efficient use of the resources while still improving our quality of live.. LiFi will create additional opportunistic to fulfill our growing need for communication.

What are the barriers that might stand in the way?
New technology always is treated with some reservations, so testing, experiencing the tech is key to get buy in.

“Special quote”
Trulifi by Signify will change the way we look at lighting.
