Wireless access to the internet or internal networks has become the standard in the global market. But with countless more connected devices and expansion of Internet of Things (IoT), shared bandwidth is already creating interference and security problems for some of our customers. Multiple networks can interfere with each other and networks can become overloaded and in some locations it is not preferred or even permitted to use radio signals to communicate at all.
Philips LiFi systems offer a new way to connect wirelessly using LED light. Data is sent through light waves that are modulated at the light source and received via an integrated infrared sensor. By plugging into a LiFi internet zone users can access and transfer data instantly by using a simple personal USB access key. The LiFi zone is completely secured within the pool of light created by the LED luminaire.
