LiFi Can Be A Lifesaver

The pureLiFi global tech firm hopes to revolutionize the future of wireless networks. It has been working alongside, Verizon, Nokia and Aegex Technologies, to demonstrate how LiFi can perform under disaster situations providing communication solutions when it is most critical. 

 

At an event named Operation Convergent Response (OCR), held at the Guardian Centers training facility in the United States, pureLiFi demonstrated their wireless LiFi technology in a subway disaster scenario. LiFi technology was used to maintain, real-time, bi-directional communications that could enable communications with a command centre allowing the emergency services to maintain safe, reliable connectivity during a response.

The Guardian Center is a world class US training facility for disaster response units who can gain experience under real emergency conditions. The event featured technologies that could advance communications during rescue operations and ultimately save lives.

 

LiFi uses light rather than radio-frequency (RF) technology such as Wi-Fi and therefore can provide wireless connectivity in areas that Wi-Fi cannot, such as power plants, petrochemical facilities, and hospitals. LiFi also eliminates interference because light can be directed. pureLiFi’s systems can be simply installed alongside existing lighting infrastructures making LiFi an ideal technology for anywhere light, and communications are required, such as industrial settings. As demonstrated at the Guardian Center LiFi can also maintain safe and reliable performance under disaster situations.

 

This novel test of LiFi technology reveals a particularly significant use case. LiFi cannot only unleash unprecedented data and bandwidth it can also offer reliable and robust connectivity when we need it most. For more info, go to http://www.pureLiFi.com
