Li-Fi – Light Transmitting Data 2016

Light Fidelity or Li-Fi is a Visible Light Communications (VLC) system running wireless communications travelling at very high speeds. Li-Fi uses common household LED (light emitting diodes) lightbulbs to enable data transfer, boasting speeds of up to 224 gigabits per second. The term Li-Fi was coined by University of Edinburgh Professor Harald Haas during a TED Talk in 2011. Has envisioned light bulbs that could act as wireless routers. Subsequently, in 2012 after four years of research, Haas set up company pure Li-Fi with the aim “to be the world leader in Visible Light Communications technology.”
