LiFi Wireless Technology How it Works
Did you know that LiFi is a wireless technology that uses light rather than radio frequencies to transmit data? Unlike 5G and WiFi 6, it harnesses the light spectrum to achieve faster, more reliable wireless communications with unmatched security. Conventional wireless technologies suffer from congestion during peak times and interference that deteriorate customer experience.

Startup pureLiFi has created the world’s first LiFi ecosystem for the consumer market, called LiFi@Home, which consists of a recessed light, smartphone, smart TV and an AR Headset all connected by LiFi. Everything is powered by an easy to install power line communication (PLC) network backhaul that utilizes existing electrical cabling to connect everything to the internet. Put simply, installing the LiFi@Home system is as easy as changing a recessed light. This technology needs to be built into the HiBed, which already has an HD projector and speakers.

The door is open for LiFi to fill the gap. LiFi is key to unlocking the next generation of connected experiences in an ecosystem where WiFi and 5G alone are not enough. What we’ve demonstrated here for the first time is how simple it is to bring LiFi into consumer environments. We’ve done all the hard work to make LiFi easy to integrate and simple to get started,” said Alistair Banham, pureLiFi CEO.
