Internet use is exploding. The global data communication volume is doubling every two years. This is caused by the number of connected devices multiplied by the data consumption of those devices.
However, the radio spectrum does not provide enough room to grow. This manifests in reduced stability and less effective coverage of wireless connectivity as well as slower throughput, frustrating user needs and expectations.
There is also growing concern about security with radio-communication. Radio provides a blanket cover, under which anyone could sneak. Unsecured or ‘open’ networks are an eavesdropper’s paradise. Therefore, the technology keeps evolving producing new ways of connecting in a more secure and faster way. Signify
(Euronext: LIGHT), the world leader in lighting, launched a new range of LiFi systems
that includes the world’s fastest and most reliable LiFi systems commercially available.What is LiFi?
LiFi (short for light fidelity) is wireless communication technology which utilizes light to transmit data. It is a light communication system that is capable of transmitting data at high speeds over the visible light, ultraviolet, and infrared spectrums. In its present state, only LED lamps can be used for the transmission of visible light. In terms of its end use, the technology is similar to WiFi - the key technical difference being that WiFi uses radio frequency to transmit data.
The range, branded Trulifi, instead of radio signals (such as WiFi, 4G/5G, Bluetooth, etc.) uses light waves to enable highly reliable, secure two-way wireless communications at speeds far above most conventional workplace wireless technologies.Simply put, Trulifi systems modulate light waves to transmit data using a transceiver.
Then all you need is a USB access key, which can be plugged into your laptop to receive and send data.
