Lucibel and pureLiFi bring industrial-grade LiFi to market
by Julien Happich, electronics-eetimes.com, 22 September 2016
French luminaire manufacturer Lucibel has launched what the company claims to be the world's first industrialized LiFi luminaire, enabling Internet access through light.
The luminaires support bidirectional data transfers at up to 42Mbps. A USB LiFi module that plugs into the user's PC receives the data and communicates back to the luminaire. The LiFi luminaires require to be connected to an Internet server via a RJ45 cable and compliment Wifi in places where it is not available or badly deployed. The LiFi luminaire and USB key co-developed by Lucibel and pureLifi will be exclusively manufactured by Lucibel in France. LiFi networks cannot be hacked without a line of sight, making them very secure. The absence of electromagnetic waves makes them suitable in hospitals, nursery, schools, and they can accommodate a high density of users in co-working spaces, airports, hotels, or meeting rooms.
