Cities Installing LiFi instead of WiFi

Amidst the rush and roar of new IoT technology clamoring for its share in the smart buildings and smart cities marketplace, LiFi enters the race at 10 gigabytes per second (you could download 18 movies in 1 second at this speed) or 100 times faster than WiFi.

Using light to send and receive data, LiFi will likely revolutionize the telecommunications industry. Testing of this technology has been completed in France and several other countries.  Professor Suat Topsu, founder of OLEDCOMM, and world-recognized authority on LiFi/visible light communication sciences industry, is the driver behind the tech being implemented today. IEEE member Herald Haas, chair of the University of Edinburgh mobile communications department widely introduced LiFi in 2011.

OLEDCOMM is currently installing more than 250,000 LiFi enabled bulbs, providing internet access in the Paris subway system. Dubai’s tech hub, Silicon Oasis, is currently implementing its LiFi network and should be completed by end of year.

LiFiNET, another product of OLEDCOMM, provides unlimited bandwidth for connecting people and IoT. It provides a highly secure and private bidirectional communication channel. Today, high energy consumption and connectivity leaks are major obstacles to unleashing the potential power of the internet. LiFiNet appears to solve these problems.
