General News Coming soon: Li-Fi networks that deliver 100 times faster data speeds than Wi-Fi!
#1

Scientists have been working on different ways to boost the wireless data transfers. One of the new technology that has been in the works for years is the Li-Fi, a new wireless technology that is capable of transferring high-speed data via visible light communication. While the technology has been tested already, researchers at Estonian hardware start-up Velmenni now successfully conducted a commercial test of the technology. Researchers managed to achieve transmission speeds of 1 gigabits per second, which is about 100 times faster than the average Wi-Fi speeds.

“We are doing a few pilot projects within different industries where we can utilise the VLC (visible light communication) technology,” Deepak Solanki, CEO of Estonian tech company, Velmenni, told IBTimes UK.

“Currently we have designed a smart lighting solution for an industrial environment where the data communication is done through light. We are also doing a pilot project with a private client where we are setting up a Li-Fi network to access the Internet in their office space.”

Researchers have also developed smart LED bulbs, called Jugnu, that will be used to transfer data through the visible lights. Also, they are working on an Android app that would be used for controlling the smart LED bulbs.

“A GUI was developed in MATLAB and a receiver circuit was made using Arduino and photodiodes. We successfully transferred a text file using this method. We only had to keep your micro-control board in front of the laptop screen (GUI) and the data was transferred wirelessly using visible light communication,” researchers said in their report.

What is Visible Light Communication

Li-Fi uses visible light communications or infrared or near ultraviolet instead of radio frequency waves to transfer data at faster speed. The technology uses visible light between 400 and 800 THz (780–375 nm). It can be emitted using by switching bulbs on and off, since it happens in nanoseconds it doesn’t get noticed by the human eye.

Li-Fi doesn’t intend to replace Wi-Fi in the near future, but comes with own set of advantages, especially the security. Since light waves cannot penetrate walls, the technology becomes much more impactful for shorter range, preventing problems such as hacking that commonly hurt Wi-Fi networks.
