Li-Fi HotSpot – Long-Distance Data Transmission

The LiFi HotSpot can replace WLAN and cable connections for data transmission over longer distances.


With a maximum data transfer rate of 1 Gbps for long-distance transmission, the LiFi HotSpot provides a suitable replacement alternative to WLAN networks and cable connections. Similar to a Wi-Fi hotspot, individual or several users can simultaneously dial in to the network. Due to the necessary line of sight, LiFi connection offers significantly greater data security than conventional network accesses.

Features of Li-Fi HotSpot technology:

  • Data rate: from kbps up to 1 Gbps

  • Wavelength: visible, infrared

  • Range: up to 30 m

  • Uni- and bi-directional, full-duplex

  • Real-time capability

  • Point-to-point, point-to-multipoint

  • Temperature range: consumer & industrial

  • Laser Class 1

    Cell-hopping / Roaming
