Something 100x faster than Wi-Fi will be in your homes sooner than you think

If you have not heard of Li-Fi already, you are missing out on the future of communication. Using visible light communication (VLC), researchers were able to transmit a whopping 224 gigs a second! Given the enormous transmitting potential of Li-Fi, it will inevitably become the future of wireless communication.

Still, testing Li-Fi in labs does not reflect the real world applications of this technology. Lucky for us, actual in field testing of Li-Fi has been implemented in Tallinn, Estonia for over two years now, producing incredible results that point to the massive potential of Li-Fi communication. In actual office spaces, Li-Fi was able to push out speeds that are over 100x greater than standard Wi-Fi!

Tried and true, Li-Fi communication has become a topic of interest for major companies that are trying to stay on the forefront of this technology.

Velmenni is the first of many companies to actually focus on the potential of visible light communication since its invention back in 2011. Utilizing the potential for VLC, Velmenni aims to disrupt the data communication world as we know it and introduce light based communication for a broad range of applications.

“We are doing a few pilot projects within different industries where we can utilise the VLC technology. Currently we have designed a smart lighting solution for an industrial environment where the data communication is done through light. We are also doing a pilot project with a private client where we are setting up a Li-Fi network to access the Internet in their office space,” explains Deepak Solanki, CEO of Estonian company Velmenni.

Analogous to an incredibly fast and complex form of Morse code, the potential for Li-Fi reaches far beyond it’s incredible speed. Given the fact that light cannot pass through walls, Li-Fi would actually be a much more secure form of data transmission as well. Li-Fi truly is the future of data communication, and it is just a matter of time before it makes its way to your home.
