Technology is emerging its way through every sector of life, making it faster and easier to use. This also includes fast internet, of course, in a better way. The world is now ready to emerge from WiFi to Li-Fi that uses light waves instead of electromagnetic radio waves to provide a free and less congested internet connection.
LiFi, unlike WiFi, works better in highly dense user areas, because it works on light emissions. Light Fidelity (LiFi) is the technology that provides high-quality lighting, while also emitting light waves that provide high-speed internet connection. The light can be detected by a USB dongle that can be plugged to a tablet or a laptop.
This network lays simultaneous connections to all the devices that are connected through the internet of things. The bulbs are also energy efficient and provide seamless handover from one light point to others. This helps customers set up LiFi lights anywhere and they are a lot easier to access, fit and come with double speed.
The LiFi market will, reportedly, take over all the government offices, working sectors, IT offices, schools and transport, B2B offices in India. This market will grow twice faster in the country in the next five years, suggests reports.
Recently, Air France flights have suggested a launch of LiFi in their flights, that will hand an easier internet mid-air. This model will be demonstrated at the International Paris Air Show (June 17 to 20) in a medium-haul Air France cabin mock-up, where visitors will be able to experience it practically.
Wipro has also announced to launch LiFi lights and work space in two months, along with a lot of other companies that promised the same. This method will offer better security, data rates, and densities to tend towards more robust and reliable wireless networks that complement and enhance existing cellular and Wi-Fi networks.
