Lighting in Design Feb March 2018Light Fidelity (LiFi) technology was invented in 2005 by Suat Topsu, president of Oledcomm – a global leader in LiFi solutions, and is a new technology that enables wireless connections between mobile devices and other networked devices using LED lights to carry data. LiFi provides data transmission by imperceptibly modulating the light emitted by an LED light. The resulting data connection is ultra-fast, secure and free of harmful electromagnetic emissions. Light signals are received and converted into data by a LiFi dongle connected to the mobile device.
