 pureLiFi: Leaders in Li-Fi


pureLiFi and Lucibel announce collaboration to introduce Europe’s first fully industrialized LiFi luminaire

Edinburgh, 25 November 2015 – pureLiFi, the light communications technology company that leads the market in development and commercialization of LiFi (the high speed, bidirectional, networked and mobile wireless communications using light) and Lucibel, the French company that specializes in the design of new-generation lighting solutions based on the LED technology, are to co-develop and market Europe’s first, fully industrialized LiFi luminaire.

The off-the-shelf solution, which will be produced at Lucibel’s industrial site in Barentin in France, will integrate pureLiFi’s innovative technology into a Lucibel LED lighting luminaire. The product measurably reduces the cost for the deployment of both communications and lighting services into a single integrated infrastructure. Additionally, LiFi increases the security, localization and overall capacity of wireless communications systems.

The partnership with pureLiFi enables Lucibel to deliver communications solutions to its customers as part of their lighting offering. This marks a world’s first by leveraging the converging business models of the lighting and communications industries.

Harald Burchardt, pureLiFi’s COO, said: “The partnership we are building with Lucibel provides an important channel to market for pureLiFi, with a view of the longer-term infrastructure roll-out of the technology. The numbers demonstrate that LiFi is rapidly moving from a predicted emerging technology to one that has real life applications across multiple sectors.”

After the integration and industrialization activities are completed, the product is expected to go to market by Q3 2016.

The first installation of this LiFi luminaire will be at the Sogeprom’s headquarters in La Defense in Paris. Sogeprom, a subsidiary of Societe Generale and a major property developer, is looking at LiFi to provide the next generation of wireless connectivity for their customers.

Pierre Sorel, Sogeprom’s Deputy CEO, comments: “We take the challenge on innovation at all levels. The installation of high bandwidth LiFi in our offices goes fits that vision and perfectly fits with our client’s demands of increased mobility, system security and connectivity.”

Frédéric Granotier, Chairman and CEO of Lucibel: “This partnership with pureLifi, who is the European leading technological actor in LiFi today, allows us to have a real advance regarding innovation and development of new value-added lighting offers for our customers”

Professor Haas, pureLiFi’s Founder and CSO said: “The collaboration with a lighting manufacturer such as Lucibel is an important milestone as it signifies that the lighting industry embraces the new ground-breaking business opportunities that LiFi will enable – these opportunities are on a similar scale as the photography industry’s move from analogue to digital technology.”
