World’s First True Li-Fi Office to Open in Paris

Tech start-up pureLifi – based in Edinburgh, Scotland – will provide the technology and French manufacturer Lucibel will supply the LED luminaires for the ambitious installation at the headquarters of Sogeprom, the property arm of French bank Société Générale. The suppliers are stressing that the project will be true high-bandwidth bi-directional Li-fi, with a user experience similar to Wi-fi. Employees will use a special dongle inserted into their computers and other devices to receive the internet via visible light from the LED lighting. A photoreceptor on the dongle will receive the data embedded in the modulated visible light. Similarly, they will upload data using an infra-red transmitter embedded on the dongle. US information company Grand View Research predicted the market for data-over-lighting technologies including Li-fi and visible light communication (VLC) would be worth $100 billion by 2024.
