Outpacing Wi-Fi: Li-Fi Standard Revealed, Promises Speeds 100 Times Faster!
- Light-speed Internet: IEEE announces 802.11bb, the standard for Li-Fi, paving the way for a 100 times faster wireless experience.
- Li-Fi, leveraging light over radio frequencies, set to redefine data transmission with unrivaled speed, reliability, and security.
- Next-gen networking: Li-Fi expected to offer congestion-free connections, heightened security, and support high bandwidth tasks with ease.
Ditch the Radio Waves – Light is Here to Stay
A New Dawn in Wireless Communications
Li-Fi is not just about speed. Fraunhofer’s Dominic Schulz points out the inherent benefits of using light for data transmission. Leveraging an exclusive optical spectrum, Li-Fi ensures higher reliability with lower latency and jitter. Moreover, Li-Fi’s line-of-sight propagation enhances security by preventing wall penetration, thus reducing risks of jamming and eavesdropping, while enabling centimetre-precision indoor navigation.

The Future is Bright
While Li-Fi may not completely replace Wi-Fi or 5G, it promises to transform the way we interact with the internet. By leveraging Li-Fi’s unique advantages in specific scenarios, we can potentially reap the benefits of both technologies. From the looks of it, a flood of Li-Fi network devices and user devices supporting this new standard is expected to hit the market soon. All we can say is, the future of internet connectivity is bright – literally!
