Harald Haas, Professor at the University of Edinburgh and Chief Science Officer (CSO) and co-founder of pureLiFi, and his team have made another breakthrough in Li-Fi by demonstrating that up to 1.1 gigabit per second (Gbps) can now be transmitted using light waves from micro LEDs over a distance of 10 metres using less than 0.5W power. This is only 5% of the power of a typical 10W LED light bulb. This proves the poi
EDINBURGH, Scotland–pureLiFi, the light communications technology company, announces a further breakthrough in Li-Fi with news that unprecedented high speed data rates can be transmitted using light waves from ‘off-the-shelf’ LED bulbs when light fixtures are dimmed to levels that appear to be off, or when illumination is not required such as in transmissions from mobile units to an access point (uplink). This

EDINBURGH, UK—August 6th, 2013— pureVLC today announced breakthrough developments and research that will take its products to new levels. At TED, in July, 2011, Prof. Harald Haas, world-famous scientist, professor at the University of Edinburgh (UoE), Chief Science Office (CSO) of pureVLC, and widely regarded as “the father of Li-Fi”, performed the first live demonstration of streaming video over LED light. Today, pu
pureVLC Ltd. today launched their new website, which provides a first glimpse of their Li-Fi product range, a comprehensive overview of visible light communications (VLC) technology, along with news and blogs surrounding the company and Li-Fi research. With this step, pureVLC hope to further bolster customer engagement, and confirm its position as the leader in Li-Fi technology.
pureVLC CSO, Professor Harald Haas, was invited to participate in the 1st edition of CNN’s “Make Create Innovate” show, which aired on 27 September 2012 as part of Quest Means Business. In a segment entitled “Li-Fi could be the future of the web”, it explored the question of whether Li-Fi, a method of transmitting data wirelessly using LED, is the answer to the world’s problem of congested bandwidth?”
