The event was aimed at increasing the collaboration between various companies that are part of the mobile wireless ecosystem, including network providers, Tier 1 operators, network security, testing equipment providers, application developers, etc. A number of key-note speeches addressed various aspects of the mobile ecosystem and the evolution of mobile communications. The show was a fantastic opportunity to meet existing and new pureLiFi partners that share the vision of true LiFi delivering high speed, bidirectional, mobile and networked wireless communications using light with discussions focused on the deployment of the technology.
pureLiFi demonstrated the Li-Flame in action, live, at Mobile World Congress in Barcelona, 2 – 5 March at the Scottish Development International stand.
The white ceiling units are the LiFi access point. They connect to the standard, off-the-shelf, LED lights as well as to the network. The black desktop units are the LiFi stations. They connect to the laptop via a standard USB2.0 or USB3.0. The Li-Flame allows multiple users to connect to the same light and receive different data in both the downlink and the uplink. The system also allows users to move from one light source to the next without losing their network connection.
