New LED Technology Boosts Wi-Fi Bandwidth Tenfold

Researchers at Oregon State University (OSU) have developed a new technology that can increase the bandwidth of WiFi systems by 10 times, using LED lights to transmit information. The technology could be integrated with existing WiFi systems to reduce bandwidth problems in crowded locations, such as airport terminals or coffee shops, and in homes where several people have multiple WiFi devices. Experts say that recent advances in LED technology have made it possible to modulate the LED light more rapidly, opening the possibility of using light for wireless transmission in a free space optical communication system. The prototype, called WiFO, uses LEDs that are beyond the visual spectrum for humans and creates an invisible cone of light about 1 m sq in which the data can be received. To address the issue of a small area of usability, the researchers created a hybrid system that can switch between several LED transmitters installed on a ceiling, and the existing WiFi system. http://bizled.co.in/new-led-technology-boosts-wi-fi-bandwidth-tenfold/
