Signify has recently launched a new range of Li-Fi systems terming it the world’s fastest and most reliable Li-Fi systems commercially available.
TruLiFi leverages existing and future professional luminaires. Instead of using radio signals (such as WiFi, 4G/5G, Bluetooth, etc.), TruLiFi uses light waves to enable highly reliable, secure two-way wireless communications at speeds far above most conventional workplace wireless technologies.
The company’s Li-Fi system uses optical wireless transceiver technology built, or retrofitted, into Philips luminaires enabling customers to utilize their existing lighting infrastructure to receive great quality light and wireless connectivity.
TruLiFi overcomes the increasing congestion of the radio spectrum and is perfect for areas where radio frequencies don’t work well, or at all, or are not permitted.
The new range comprises TruLiFi-enabled luminaires providing wireless connectivity at speeds up to 150 Megabits per second (Mbps) over large spaces, such as meeting rooms and office floors. The speed is fast enough to stream simultaneously 30 1080p HDTV movies. A USB-access key, plugged into a laptop, is needed to receive the Li-Fi signal and acts as an emitter to send data back to the luminaire. The recently launched system range also includes a fixed point-to-point system, up to 250 Mbps speed, which acts like a wireless cable, ideal for connecting devices.
The Key Application includes:
- connecting robots or machines in radio frequency (RF) harsh environments like industrial plants
- hospitals where RF communications may not be permitted
- where there’s a need to send and receive large data files securely and quickly.
TruLiFi underlines our strategy to unlock the potential of light to address new high-growth markets. Through our global presence, large installed base and industry knowledge, we’ll help existing and new customers to leverage their lighting infrastructures to receive reliable, secure, high-speed wireless communication at a very competitive price-point. Wherever there’s light, there can now be wireless communication.” Olivia Qiu, Chief Innovation Officer at Signify
Along with this, Signify has also announced two new customers at the launch, Globalworth and Claerhout Communication Campus.
