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.
