With advanced technologies in the markets, now it’s time for advanced wireless networks which you would have not imagined. We are using Wi-Fi with high speeds; but now Li-Fi is coming to take over Wi-Fi networks. The way we are using internet will be highly advanced and will change to extremes.

Li-Fi is wireless communication technology similar to Wi-Fi, coined by Prof. Harald Haas, from the University of Edinburgh, UK, who is regarded as the original founder of Li-Fi. It is a subset of OWC (Optical Wireless Communications) and it uses VLC (Visible Light Communication) or Infra-Red and near Ultraviolet spectrum, which carries much more information and has been proposed as a solution to the RF-Bandwidth limitations. The OWC technology uses light as a medium to deliver high-speed networked communication in a similar manner like Wi-Fi.li-fi-wireless-internet-technology

VLC works in a fraction of nanoseconds by switching ON or OFF the bulbs. Scientists have claimed that they are achieving speeds up to 224GB/sec in the lab using Li-Fi earlier this year and the speeds like this would bring a new revolution in the world of accessing wireless networks. Now Estonian startup company called Velmenni have tested Li-Fi out of the Lab in Tallinn for the first time and they are claiming that they can achieve speeds up to 1GB/sec at a work environment and if we compare this speed then it is 100 times faster than Wi-Fi speeds that we have around.

Unlike Wi-Fi networks, Li-Fi can penetrate through walls as it is based on light and this makes it more secure from external sniffing. But as Li-Fi is based on light, so it will not be able to replace public Wi-Fi networks anytime soon.

Deepak Solanki, CEO of Velmenni, spoke to International Business Times UK that this technology would reach consumers in probably 3-4years. And it will take some time for Li-Fi enabled devices to be available in markets and this will likely to work parallel with Wi-Fi networks.

  2. I am the co-founder of JustCBD label (justcbdstore.com) and I’m presently seeking to grow my wholesale side of company. It would be great if someone at targetdomain is able to provide some guidance . I thought that the most effective way to accomplish this would be to connect to vape shops and cbd retail stores. I was hoping if anybody at all could recommend a reliable web-site where I can buy CBD Shops B2B Sales Leads I am already taking a look at creativebeartech.com, theeliquidboutique.co.uk and wowitloveithaveit.com. On the fence which one would be the very best selection and would appreciate any assistance on this. Or would it be simpler for me to scrape my own leads? Ideas?

  3. Good post. I learn something new and challenging on blogs I stumbleupon on a daily basis. It’s always interesting to read through content from other authors and practice something from their web sites.
