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.
The presentation will show where common Wi-Fi interworking models for the integration with 5G core and services fall short in fully leveraging LiFi capabilities, and what steps have to be taken in development and standardization to overcome the shortcomings in the current approaches.
