Together we build the LiFi ecosystem

Standards-based, multi-vendor ecosystem. Every day, we do amazing things with light. Where there’s light… there can be wireless communication through LiFi. Within Signify, I am responsible for building a worldwide, cross-industry ecosystem around this latest innovation in lighting. Fast, reliable and safe data communication not using RF but light. How cool is that !?!

What is Li-Fi?

According to Wikipedia: Li-Fi (ˈlaɪfaɪ; short for light fidelity) is wireless communication technology, which utilizes light to transmit data and position between devices.

In technical terms, Li-Fi is a light communication system (hence based on photonics) that is capable of transmitting data at high speeds over the visible light, ultraviolet, and infrared spectrums. In its present state, only LED lamps can be used for the transmission of visible light.

In terms of its end use, the technology is similar to Wi-Fi – the key technical difference being that Wi-Fi uses radio frequency to transmit data.
