The Lowdown on LiFi

In case you haven’t heard of the term yet, “LiFi” is short for Light Fidelity and refers to the modulation of light in order to wirelessly stream data. It is similar to WiFi as the modulation of radio waves, which is light at an invisible wavelength. LiFi technology is also sometimes referred to as “Visible Light Communication” or VLC. What makes LiFi so important is its significant advantages over WiFi, including much faster data rates, increased bandwidth, enhanced cybersecurity within a built environment, plus it avoids the radio interference and constrained bandwidth that is limiting WiFi.

LaserLiFi can now deliver >10Gbit/sec at 5 meter range from a 500 lumen spotlight.
