ITU-T standard based G.hn 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 G.hn as reliable backbone.Continue reading “G.hn backbone and ecosystem support for Li-Fi use cases.

A regulators perspective”
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.Continue reading “Taking LiFi mainstream”
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.Continue reading “Fully leveraging LiFi capabilities through enhanced integration with 5G core and services”

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?”
presentation by Musa Unmehopa, Head of Ecosystems and Strategic Alliances for LiFi at Signify
There are many exciting LiFi innovations taking place and there is a lot of important LiFi research going on. But as we continue to push the boundaries of what is technologically possible, it is important to realize that the current generation of LiFi technology is mature enough to build the first commercial products.Continue reading “Building the LiFi Ecosystem”
