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.

Fully leveraging LiFi capabilities through enhanced integration with 5G core and services

Maximilian Riegel

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.

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.
