New Li-Fi technology is 100 times faster than Wi-Fi
A new technology called Li-Fi (Light Fidelity) promises connections up to 100 times faster than Wi-Fi. According to researchers, the new alternative technology transmits high-speed data using visible light communication, which would reach speeds of 1 Gbps, which is about 100 times faster than a standard WiFi.
Created in 2011, the transmission via Li-Fi is made using LED lights, which flicker on and off so fast that it is completely imperceptible to the human eye. Li-Fi could, ofr example, allow users to download an HD movie in a few seconds.
“We are doing a few pilot projects within different industries where we can utilise the VLC (visible light communication) technology,” Deepak Solanki, CEO of Estonian tech company, Velmenni, told IBTimes UK.
