The LiFi-X is the evolution of the world’s first LiFi system, the Li-Flame. The system offers partners the ability to deploy a fully networked LiFi solution. Unlike existing VLC products, the LiFi-X supports multiple access, roaming, complete mobility and ease of use – providing a level of user experience that is comparable and more secure than existing wireless technologies such as Wi-Fi.

The LiFi-X delivers high data densities and eliminates unwanted external network intrusion. In addition, the merger of illumination with wireless communications provides a measurable reduction in both infrastructure complexity and energy consumption. LiFi-X delivers:

  • Full duplex communication with a 40Mbps downlink and 40Mbps uplink;
  • Full mobility (portable, USB-powered station)
  • Multiple users per LiFi Access Point, supported through multiple access
  • Secure wireless communications constrained by walls, eliminating the risk of signal leakage to external eavesdroppers
  • Safe wireless communication in environments where radio frequencies are not suitable
  • Flexible deployments
  • Extensive range of wireless communication applications including and beyond existing Wi-Fi
  • cost-effective delivery of light and data via a single infrastructure

LiFi-X Access Point (AP)                                                                                            

  • Support for Power over Ethernet (PoE) or Power Line Communications (PLC)
  • Simple installation
  • Connect to a wide range of LED light fixture to form an atto-cell 
  • Multiple access
  • Handover control enables seamless switching between APs

LiFi-X Station (STA)

  • USB 2.0 powered
  • Supports handover, allowing user to move maintain their wireless session

The LiFi-X was publicly demonstrated at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona on 22 – 25 February 2016 and hosted by the Scottish Development International.
