A vision about future developments in wireless light communication

Unesco in 2015, the International Year of Light, has defined the current century as the century of “Light and Photonics” Thinking in this way, it means that we can dream a century of researches and evolutions in this field. What are the current limits of Li-Fi and what are the research subjects that have to be solved in the next years to continue this progress?
Are the current existing technologies ready to support the next market and technical challenges?

As in the evolution and history of the Radio waves, how can we Imagine a possible future scenario of Li-Fi evolution?

Beyond LaserLight there is DataLight: LiFi for Mobility

KSLD Laser has been supplying high performance lighting solutions for automotive since 2019. More recently we have developed and marketed the Dual Emission SMD. It contains two solid state lasers, in most cases a GaN blue laser and an IR laser chip, plus a YAG phosphor. The two chips can be activated individually to produce white light and IR Light.
The brightness of the white source in the SMD is 3-5 times higher than that of any LED, which makes it ideal for long distance projection purposes. At the same time, it can generate LiFi data rates, which are 10-50 higher than those of LEDs. Such data rates equally apply for the IR source.

LiFi for Industry 4.0

volker jungnickel

LiFi is mobile communications by using the light. LiFi can be used next to Wi-Fi and 5G, so that radio provides ubiquitous coverage and light adds unlimited capacity. This talk will focus on LiFi for Industry 4.0. LiFi is deployed at the ceiling as a dense grid of wireless access points with a few meters of distance. For Industry 4.0, LiFi is operated as a large, distributed multiple-input multiple-output system.

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.

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.
