Paris Firm Wins Contract to Supply Li-Fi for the Paris Metro

The ambitious project – which will allow over two million daily commuters to use lights as a form of Wi-fi, dubbed ‘Li-fi’ – now looks firmly on track. Paris-based Oledcomm, a spin-off of the University of Versailles, won the contract from RAPT to initially supply Li-fi installations in 66 stations across Paris, involving over 250,000 LED luminaires. The system needed to demonstrate that it could deliver on its core promises of a Li-fi installation, especially on four key criteria:
• The Li-fi can operate within a complex physical environment
• The system can provide the bi-directional communications needed for a secure internet connection
• Traffic and security information can be ‘pushed’ to smart phones as necessary
• A system of audio-messaging could be developed to enable tourists and people with impaired sight to be guided around the tunnels and concourses of an underground station
