PC Magazine – pureLiFi Demos Skype Call Over Light-Based ‘LiFi


Thomas Newton from PC Magazine interviewed our CEO Alistair Banham and Co-founder and Chief Technology Officer Mostafa Afgani at this years MWC. Alistair demonstrated the first Skype call over a light fidelity (LiFi) connection using a Samsung Galaxy S5 housed in a custom-built case that was adapted to fit a modified LiFi-XC dongle. The demo was made possible by modifying our existing Linux drivers so they worked alongside an Android, which is of course based on a version of Linux. As well as the custom-built phone case pureLiFi revealed a second POC to PC Magazine an integrated laptop a significant milestone for both the company and technology. The two POC’s were demonstrated alongside our latest product the LiFi-XC to a large number of attendees all wanting to understand more about our technology and how LiFi will sit alongside other wireless technologies.
