Some time ago was presented veryAdvanced Li-Fi wireless technology capable of transmitting data using visible light. It was assumed that the new product will be implemented in smartphones Apple. However, further applications did not progress.
However, Signify is now a former PhilipsLighting introduced Truelifi bulbs using Li-Fi technology to transmit data to mobile devices and laptops using the visible light spectrum at speeds up to 150 Mbps.
In parallel, the company introduced transceiver devices capable of implementing support for Li-Fi technology in conventional lighting devices and transmitting data at speeds up to 250 Mbps.
The novelty is intended primarily forpublic and office buildings, which will ensure maximum coverage. To support the technology, a special adapter is needed that is installed on the receiving mobile devices. Also, devices must be located at a certain angle to the light source.
The use of technology Li-Fi will be usedin medical institutions where it is necessary to minimize radio frequency radiation, which is used by standard Wi-Fi modules. You can stop data transmission simply by turning off the light in the room.
Currently, neither the price nor the specific consumers of new devices are not disclosed.
