HomeGrid Forum is partner of the 2022 edition of the LiFi Conference

HomeGrid Forum (HGF) is an industry alliance formed to support the development and deployment of a unified coaxial, phoneline, powerline, and plastic optical fiber home networking technology called G.hn (Gigabit Home Networking). G.hn technology is based on standards developed by the UN’s International Telecommunications Union – Telecom (ITU-T) standards development organization.

Techno-economic analysis and planning issues for LiFi solutions

The expected deployment of Lifi solutions in IoT scenarios promises robustness through exclusive channel access in the unlicensed optical spectrum, lower latency, as well as enhanced security. However, the success of this expected deployment is subject to their cost analysis. This talk will introduce a techno-economic framework, which from the scenario and planning problem outputs, evaluates the Total Cost of Ownership (TCO) and the yearly cost per delivered capacity among other metrics. This framework allows comparing different solutions and identifying cost drivers. Particular results of an industrial scenario will be presented.

Optical Camera Communication, a wireless communication between LED Light and camera of the phone (image sensor) for usage of b2b2c

OCC technology that stands for Optical Camera Communication is a one-way communication flow between an LED lamp and a smartphone.
This allows for glocalization with ultra-precision limited strictly and securely to the beam of the LED. It detects the presence of a user under a specific light at a live timeframe.

Towards Terabit per Second Wireless Networking with Light

We will show recent research results of the project Terabit Optical Wireless System (TOWS) which aims at building LiFi networks capable of aggregate data rates greater than 1 Tbps. One of the main limitations to unlock the full capacity of the optical spectrum are the electrical-to-optical (E/O) and optical-to-electrical (O/E) conversion efficiencies of current opto-electronic devices.

Symbol-Synchronous Buses: Deterministic, Low-Latency Wireless Mesh Networking with LEDs

Industrial real-time control applications often require performance guarantees that contemporary wireless networks fail to offer. The cause of this shortcoming lies in the complexity and inefficiency of current wireless network architectures, which must coordinate multiple nodes across dense deployments, and hence today cannot match the latency levels offered by wired bus networks used for real-time control, such as CAN and Profibus.

LiFi Standardization Status and Evolution

Standards are an important prerequisite for mass deployment of communication technologies. As Light Communications is able to serve a wide variety of applications, a single standard is not sufficient to allow for high-performance cost-optimized solutions for all cases.
After a first light communications standard initiated in 2008 and ratified in 2011 through IEEE Std 802.15.7-2011, LC standardization further evolved to cover the various deployment domains. Parallel to past and ongoing enhancements of 802.15.7, IEEE P802.15.13 addresses high speed light communication needs with up to 10 Gb/s over distances of up to 200m unrestricted line. It leverages latest technologies like distributed MU-MIMO and offers different PHY modes for data rates of up to 2.2 Gb/s per stream.
