    The growing connectivity landscape

    Modern spaces are congested with tools and devices that run on radio frequencies (RF) like Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, ZigBee etc. These RF devices overload the signal bandwidth leading to poor performance and unstable connection. With the radio spectrum already overloaded and the number of RF devices growing exponentially, the reliability of your network is expected to deteriorate further. In addition, RF devices can also penetrate through your building perimeter thereby making your network security vulnerable to external rouge elements.

    Light spectrum

    Ease wireless congestion with your lighting

    LiFi or light fidelity is a form of visible lighting communication (VLC) technique capable of transmitting data at high speeds over the visible light spectrum, ultraviolet and infrared radiation. It is a lighting equivalent of Wi-Fi but utilizes an untapped lighting spectrum instead of the congested radio spectrum to facilitate wireless internet connectivity.

    Why LiFi is better

    No compromise on lighting – Integrated into high quality lighting fixtures, protecting the lighting performance and quality.

    Fast

    • Immune to RF interferences.
    • Can deliver 30 Mb/s bandwidth with up to 15 users.
    • Typical bandwidth required for a 1080p HD video is 4 Mb/s, which LiFi exceeds by 7 times.
    • Content only available within line-of-sight and cannot be accessed through walls and physical boundaries unlike Wi-Fi networks.

    Secure

    • Since data is sent through light waves, you can only plug into the LiFi zone by standing in the pool of light created by the LED luminaire.
    • Sensors can shut off the lights when the space is vacant thereby supporting transmission of data only when and where it is needed.

    Stable

    • Since lighting is required throughout a building, there are overlapping pools of light. This means that even if a user is not directly under a luminaire, the dongle can detect signal from multiple neighboring luminaires to deliver a stable data rate per user and reliable wireless communication.

    Where to use LiFi

    Alternative solution – LiFi Systems can be used in RF sensitive areas with poor or no WiFi.

    Conference rooms – Have interruption free teleconferences and video-conferences.

    Executive/R&D/financial department areas – Give your executives a secure internet connection to safely transmit confidential data.

    To control data access – Set rules around data access between various users and departments.
