For the development of LiFi-X, providing wireless internet using the visible-light spectrum.

Imagine every LED light could connect you to the Internet. Lights in our homes, offices, buildings and streetlights connecting us to high-speed, secure and reliable internet. LiFi is high-speed bi-directional, fully networked and mobile communication of data using light.

Connectivity is evolving. The spectrum now has to accommodate more mobile users and a forecasted increase to 20 billion devices connected to the Internet of Things by the year 2020. It is time to future-proof our wireless networks to enable the connectivity demands of tomorrow. With LiFi we can utilise the spectrum more than 1000 times greater than the spectrum utilised for radio frequencies.

pureLiFi brought the first commercial LiFi product to the world and continue to lead the advancement of this groundbreaking technology. In 2016 they released the world’s first LiFi-integrated luminaire and the world’s fastest, smallest and most secure LiFi dongle.

The company was co-founded by Professor Harald Haas – known as the “Father of LiFI” – in 2011 after his famous TedGlobal talk, where he demonstrated light fidelity for the first time and coined the phrase LiFi. pureLiFi is pioneering the advancement of LiFi, which will revolutionise wireless communications and deliver unprecedented bandwidth and data to the world.
