LiFi uses LEDs for high speed wireless networking.

pureLiFi has managed to miniaturise mobile LiFi and now it’s technology is now small enough to be integrated into many laptops, tablets and smart appliances.

The company showcased LiFi integrated devices, including an off the shelf commercial Dell laptop and a LiFi phone sleeve that operates with a Samsung mobile phone at Mobile World Congress (MWC).

LiFi is cellular wireless networking technology that uses LEDs for data transfer enabling high speed wireless networking.

Alistair Banham, pureLiFi’s CEO, said the two new integrated examples point to the future that LiFi will provide. “We see LiFi connecting every device and everyone. Today we’ve proven we’re clearly on the way to realising that vision,” Banham added.  

The team performed the world’s first skype call on a LiFi enabled mobile phone to an audience at their stand at MWC using its LiFi-XC technology.

In October 2017 pureLiFi Launched the LiFI-XC a commercial-ready LiFi system on the market enabling partners and customers the ability to deploy a fully networked LiFi solution. LiFi-XC supports multiple access, roaming, mobility and ease of use – providing a level of user experience that is comparable to Wi-Fi but with the security and density benefits of the light spectrum. 

pureLiFi continue to expand their reach year on year with deployments in over 20 countries. The LiFi technology demonstrated by pureLiFi at Mobile World Congress is proof that a light connected world is just on the horizon.
