LiFi Bridge

Common Challenge

This Ellipz solution allows customers to be connected to the internet in places where WiFi is unattainable or restricted, such as hospitals, industrial plants, or underground stations. Where WiFi is a suboptimal solution, Ellipz has created an expansion to that network.

Our Solution

With LiFi Bridge, Ellipz has created a system that allows for an exchange of information between devices by streaming data via light. This system provides a stable internet connection that is compatible with existing communication technologies (eg WiFi), allowing customers to expand their current network with Ellipz’s secure, redundant and strong network.

Ellipz LiFi lamps are connected to ethernet cables and then take the internet data and transform it so that internet communication via light is possible. Ellipz dongles are connected to personal devices, such as smartphones or tablets, allowing them to stream internet via the light of the Ellipz lamps.

Ellipz Smart Solutions is constantly developing its technology to further increase high-speed internet connections and facilitate the integration of this technology into everyday consumer electronics.

How does it work?

The LiFi receiver (dongle) is connected to the customer’s device (eg a laptop) and communicates with the Ellipz LiFi lamp. A Powerline Communication (PLC) or Ethernet infrastructure is used to transmit the data from the Ellipz LiFi lamp to the internet router. LiFi technology uses Visible Light to send information to the dongle, which is connected to a user’s device, such as a laptop or smartphone. Together they establish a secure connection for the user to send and receive data. This solution should be seen as a supplement to WiFi networks, not as a replacement.

This solution requires the following products:

  • Ellipz two-way LiFi lamp (LiFi Bridge), which has an integrated modulator, necessary to send and receive data via light
  • Ellipz dongle receivers, attachable to smartphones and tablets
  • Ellipz Software package to track, manage and determine permitted users

Application areas
