Li-Fi competing with WLAN in the industrial environment

High-Speed with Data Reception Guarantee

Press Release / 27.10.2016

Developers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems (IPMS) in Dresden are convinced that Li-Fi technology, the use of light to transfer very large amounts of data, could soon supplement or even replace established wired or radio-based wireless transmission technologies in highly-automated production environments. Fraunhofer IPMS specialists have already constructed initial prototypes for Li-Fi communication at short and medium distances for different application scenarios. Visitors are invited to view these communication modules at the upcoming exhibitions »Electronica« as well as »SPS IPC Drives«.
