We present a survey to hybrid LiFi and WiFi networks, in the context of indoor communications. We introduce the different features of each technology and review papers showing the possible collaborative coexistence of the two networks. Research directions in this field are also reviewed.Continue reading “Heterogeneous LiFi and WiFi networks”
We want to help the world communicate by inspiring investment in light communication.
The Light Communication Alliance (LCA) build demand the only way possible, through industry collaboration.
We understand that advancing light communication requires a collaborative ecosystem approach. Only together can we research, develop and deploy viable technology.Continue reading “Light Communication Alliance presentation”
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.Continue reading “What is Li-Fi?”
