O2 Trails Data Transmission through LED Bulbs

Telecom operator O2 has announced its partnership with PureLiFi for a trail network using LED lights to provide high-speed wireless connection for data transmission. The technology, known as LiFi (lighting fidelity), uses visible light instead of radio waves to transmit data. O2 UK conducted the trial with PureLiFi, a Scottish technology start-up company as a part of a series of network tests for paving the way for 5G launch in the UK. O2 has installed PureLiFi’s LiFi-XC system which comprises nine LED bulbs emitting white light and enables data transmission from a LED light bulb and back at high speeds through adjustments in the bulb’s brightness. According to O2, LiFi has the potential to offer a safer, more reliable and more secure wireless data communication than Wi-Fi with its reliance on the visible light spectrum, while reducing infrastructure complexity and energy consumption. http://luxreview.com/article/2018/08/o2-trials-data-transmission-with-light
