The benefits of LiFi emerge as a result of unlocking the vast amount of license-free and secure electromagnetic spectrum that lies in the infrared and visible light regions.

Benefits of LiFi

The key benefits are:

  • Enhanced wireless infrastructures by providing an additional layer of small cells (‘attocells’);
  • The avoidance of the radio frequency spectrum crunch (10,000 times more capacity);
  • Enabling very high peak data rates (10 Gbps)
  • The enabling of the Internet-of-Things (100 times more devices)
  • Significantly enhanced secure wireless communication (reduced interception of signals)
  • Enhanced energy-efficiency by combining data communication and illumination (100 times energy reduction)
  • Complete elimination of health concerns

The LiFi Net

The LiFi R&D Centre works to enable these advantages by addressing all aspects of wireless systems, from devices to networking protocols.
