Yes, the time has come to shift from Wi-Fi to Li-Fi a substitute technology that is 100 times more faster than the average speed of your Wi-Fi. Researchers have just field-tested the new wireless innovation called Li-Fi at the initial time and accomplished marvelous wireless speeds that are 100 times quicker than current WiFi agility.
What is Li-Fi Technology?
Li-Fi is another wireless innovation that transfers high-speed data utilizing light (i.e. Visible Light Communication or VLC) instead of radio bands. In clear words, Li-Fi is a Super-Fast substitute of Wi-Fi. In starting of this year, researchers accomplished mind blowing speed of 224 gigabits per second (GBps) in the lab utilizing Li-Fi. It’s trusted that this innovation can possibly change everything about the way we utilize the Internet today. And Yes, it will.
Test Results Says: Li-Fi is 100 times Quicker than Wi-Fi
An Estonian (a country in Northern Europe) based startup company called Velmenni took the technology away from the laboratories into the real-world offices, and industrial surroundings in Tallinn for the very first time and, trust me, it’s really, very fast. The company could transmit data at the speed of 1GB per second, which is approximately 100 times faster than the Wi-Fi speeds.
“We are doing a few pilot projects in different industries where we can utilize the VLC technology,”Velmenni’s CEO Deepak Solanki told IBTimes UK.
“Currently we have designed a smart lighting solution for an industrial environment where the data communication is done through the light. We’re also doing a pilot project with a private client where we’re setting up a Li-Fi network to access the Internet in [our] office space.”
Being totally different from Wi-Fi system signals, Li-Fi depends on light and can’t go through walls, which makes it more protected from outside sniffing. Meanwhile, it also implies there is less chances of interference from other devices.
Who was Behind the Invention of Li-Fi?
The Li-Fi innovation was begun in 2011 by German physicist Harald Haas, who sketched out the idea of utilizing light bulbs as remote routers during a TED discussion. He showed that with a flashing light from an LED, one could transfer more data instead of a cellular tower.
