LiFi has the potential to significantly increase the speed of your internet connection, decrease the interference issues and improve the security of your data transfer. All this is made possible because it uses the light spectrum, rather than radio waves. Light does not penetrate walls so the information carried in the light beam remains within the boundaries of the room or building.
Because it uses light waves, LiFi has a far broader bandwidth. This means that LiFi can offer a fast, high-density communication channel with low interference. Multiple consumer devices can connect to a single LiFi fixture and surf the net safely and quickly.
LiFi is the perfect solution for public places such as transportation hubs, shopping malls and convention centers.
Traffic lights & vehicles
Using LiFi, traffic lights can now communicate with cars and with each other. A small piece of technology hardware adds data to existing light sources so that they are transformed into communication channels. Cars will be able to send and receive information through their LED-based front and rear lights, and communicate with each other to prevent accidents or exchange traffic information.
Schools & universities
Nowadays, children are constantly exposed to radio waves – at home, at school, in public transport and elsewhere. Parents are increasingly worried about the negative effect of radio waves on their children. LiFi uses the light spectrum to transfer data, which is healthier. The technology also allows for more permissioning and greater control over what users can access on the web via that network.
Unlike radio waves, LiFi cannot penetrate through the human body and is blocked by the skin. It is therefore safer for the human body to connect to the internet using light waves instead of radio waves. Unlike radio waves, light waves do not interfere with other sensitive hospital machinery. In an environment dedicated to the preservation of life, LiFi reduces the risk factors associated with radio waves without reducing any of the connectivity.
Intrinsically safe environments
Since LiFi transfers data via the light spectrum rather than radio waves, it can be used in places where the latter is either dangerous or unable to penetrate. In the thousands of kilometers of mines, for example, that are deep below the ground, our LiFi solutions can enhance the safety of the workers by tracking them and their machinery.
In the search to make planes lighter and cheaper to fly, one of the things aircraft engineers have tried to reduce is the volume/quantity of cables. Planes are becoming smarter and connected to the web, but that brings security concerns with it. WiFi can penetrate walls, exposing the cockpit to potential hacking from the cabin. LiFi cannot travel through walls as it requires light to transport data, and therefore offers a more secure, ring-fenced communication system.
Millions of street lamps are already installed and functioning around the world. With our LiFi lights, these street lamps could become free LiFi access points. This means that anywhere there is light, there could be connectivity. While some developing countries have achieved remarkable access, there are many where the internet remains a promise. Since light is the most widely available public infrastructure, there is a unique opportunity to offer connectivity through upgrading this existing network of public light with LiFi.
High speed trains
High speed trains are getting more popular, due to the increasing speed and higher comfort levels. LiFi offers travellers the opportunity to be connected to a fast and stable network, making use of the existing power network. Travellers can stay connected and productive on board. Using existing networks to communicate data via LiFi doesn't only make sense from a cost perspective, but the trains also become an ever more important link in the chain of intra city connectivity.
