The Li-1st provides the first major opportunity for customers to rapidly develop and test VLC applications for cost-effective, high-speed data communication solutions that utilize commercial light emitting diode (LED) infrastructures.
The product offers full duplex communication with a capacity of 11.5 Mbps in both the downlink and uplink over a range of up to three metres, while simultaneously providing ample desk space illumination. The distance achieved by the system depends only on the strength of the light source, i.e., the LED light. Li-1st offers a simple plug-and-play solution for secure wireless point-to-point Internet access with a wide range of LED luminaires working seemlessly with large 600×600 panels, as well as T5 replacement LED tubes or downlighters. Indeed, the Li-1st is a largely LED luminaire agnostic, providing a diverse tool for deploying and exploiting the shifting, services based, business model of the lighting industry.
The Li-1st has been created to provide a platform for pilot projects with pureLiFi partners, and to establish engagement on pureLiFi’s high-speed technology path, upon which this product is the initial step.
The system will be available on limited release from January 2014. For more information on availability please complete the contact form here.
