Wipro Lighting, part of Wipro Enterprises (P) Limited and a leading player in lighting in India, has concluded an agreement with pureLiFi – global leaders in LiFi technology and commercialisation, to harness their LiFi technology to develop applications for the wireless communications and lighting market in Asia.
Wipro Lighting will now kick-start efforts to add a new revolutionary LiFi lighting concepts to their portfolio of innovative products with the help of pureLiFi.
LiFi is high-speed bidirectional fully networked, wireless communications using visible light rather than radio frequencies. LiFi can offer significantly greater security, data rates and densities to support more robust and reliable wireless networks that complement and enhance existing cellular and Wi-Fi networks. LiFi technology originates in Edinburgh, Scotland were pureLiFi has consistently driven innovation and released world leading products to the market such as the first LiFi dongle — LiFi-X and a LiFi integrated luminaire which were both showcased at Mobile World Congress in March 2017.
Each year the world utilises 60 percent more wireless data than the previous one, and the number of connected devices such as mobile phones and smart devices is growing exponentially, likely to be in excess of 50 billion by 2020. If internet users are going to continue to live in the wireless cloud with wearables, virtual reality and in a fully connected world, we need new wireless technology such as LiFi to realise this future.
