Hands-On Technology Workshop | Li-Fi Wireless Data Transmission with Light

Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems IPMS, 01109 Dresden, Maria-Reiche-Str. 2

How can we replace cable connections with optical interfaces and still transfer high rates of data? How can we replace or expand local business networks with wireless communication and sustain a trouble-free and secure solution? These and other questions will be discussed in an the Hands-On workshop.

The workshop will focus on Li-Fi (light fidelity) technology. This new technology now allows the wireless transfer of data through light.

Which distances and data rates can be achieved with Li-Fi? What types of connections are possible? Is the technology capable of working in real-time? The answers to these and many other questions will be provided at our workshop.

In the introduction,, Dr. Alexander Noack, Fraunhofer IPMS Development Director, will explain the functionality of the technology. Performance of the technology will then be demonstrated at different stations. Participants will be given the opportunity to personally test and configure the new technology. In conclusion, we will discuss the technology's future perspectives and application scenarios.

Overall, the workshop will provide you a unique insight into state-of-the-art technology as well as Li-Fi operation, a chance to sample the Li-Fi technology, and examples of practical applications. The workshop is geared toward industry representatives who either wish to gain an overview of the state-of-the-art technology or have specific application needs.

Participation Fee: 490 € not including VAT.

The number of participants is limited. Please register here until November 8, 2017.
