Laser Li-Fi is Ten-Times Faster than LED Li-Fi

Li-Fi technology that uses LED lighting instead of radio waves (Wi-Fi) to transmit data, will now use laser-based lighting, that will transmit data rate ten times faster. Laser-based Li-Fi will have better light output than LED. The project is being conducted by Harald Haas, chairman of mobile communications at the University of Edinburgh. In the research Haas and his team showed that by replacing LEDs with laser diodes the speed can be improved drastically. While LED-based Li-Fi could reach data rates of 10 Gb/s, an improvement over the 7 Gb/s maximum of Wi-Fi, using lasers could boost that speed to easily beyond 100 Gb/s.
