pureLiFi to demonstrate world’s first LiFi integrated luminaire at Mobile World Congress

  • pureLiFi at the forefront of emerging LiFi industry in 2017 with the fastest, smallest most secure systems on the market
  • Further global expansion planned in 2017 with a customer base that includes market leaders such as Cisco and BT.


Edinburgh, 15 February 2017 – pureLiFi, the tech firm pioneering LiFi technology that aims to revolutionise the future of wireless networks, moves into its next phase of growth in 2017.

pureLiFi’s industry-leading technology, including the LiFi-X and integrated luminaire, will be on show at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona from 27th February to 2nd March. The team will be demonstrating a high speed bidirectional networked and mobile communication system using light, along with the LiFi-X a dongle that can be used with any USB 2.0 enabled mobile device such as laptops and tablets. Delegates will have the opportunity to experience a truly wireless LiFi experience and fluid handover between lights.

Under the leadership of new CEO Alistair Banham, a technology veteran from the semiconductor industry pureLiFi’s focus is on the product roadmap and continuing miniaturisation of LiFi technology. In 2016 pureLiFi doubled the size of its team and is expanding its global footprint this year on the back of sales operations launched in San Francisco, Chicago and Singapore and a growing customer base that includes marketing leaders such as Cisco and BT.

Alistair Banham, pureLiFi’s CEO, said: “Increasingly, the global mobile industry realises the potential of LiFi to complement existing wireless networks and the world’s insatiable demand for higher internet connection speeds that will be integral to our wirelessly connected future.  Along these lines, our focus at pureLiFi is on the engineering and technology that will address this challenge and unleash unprecedented data and bandwidth.”

LiFi will be a pervasive technology that will play a key role in the development of smart homes, buildings, cities and nations. According to Gartner 20 billion, IoT devices are predicted to hit the market by 2020. The resulting RF crunch means new spectrum is required to power our wirelessly connected future and LiFi can deliver 1000 times the capacity. There is no doubt that the future for LiFi is bright.
