Wi-Fi networks have made our lives so untangled, though we never stop to think about or appreciate it. The speeds of modern-day wireless routers are super-fast; though the connection speeds of your ISP plays a greater role in how you experience the speed than the speed of the router. It is only a gateway after all, and it’s your ISP who determines how fast or slow you will be browsing. But what if I told you LiFi could increase wireless connection speeds hundreds fold?
LiFi is a new type of high-speed wireless internet transmission technology, but unlike Wi-Fi that uses invisible electromagnetic rays. LiFi uses visible light to transmit data. That means you will be able to view the network as light; when you don’t see it, it means the network is off.
Organic LED the backbone of LiFi network
LiFi is a prototype work by researchers from the Northumbria University, Newcastle and UCL. These researchers have come up with a new kind of organic LED (Light-Emitting Diode) capable of communicating with smart devices like smartphones, tablets, and computers. The communication is significantly faster than what you get Click here to read entire article
