We will review the current trends in 6G. In this context will showcase the opportunities for optical wireless communications in general and LiFi in particular. We will provide examples of ongoing activities as part of the new 6G research platform in the UK: PlaTform DrIving The UltimAte CoNnectivity (TITAN) on the future network of networks (NoN). TITAN is a consortium of 16 universities in the UK.Continue reading “The Role of LiFi in 6G”
Light Communications Alliance: a key institution for a greener ICT
Light communication technologies are creating a new breakthrough to offer new added services in a sustainable way. In this presentation we will first present the Light Communication Alliance regrouping key actors of this domain. The missions of the Alliance as well as key messaging will be provided. In a second part, this presentation will show how this technology could play an important role to design greener end-to-end solutions by combining optical wired and wireless communication technologies while paving the way to heterogeneous technologies for access points.Continue reading “Light Communications Alliance: a key institution for a greener ICT”
Very High Data Rate Optical Wireless Communication with Micro Organic LED
We present a broadband free space light communication using high-speed micro organic light emitting diode (OLED) as transmitter. We report first the design and bandwidth measurements of innovative OLEDs whose size are in the range of tens of micrometres. For OLEDs with reduced active area such as 40 µm x 40 µm, a cut-off frequency up to 345 MHz is reached. Then a free-space optical wireless link is build based on these high-speed micro-OLED. Using Direct Current Optical-Orthogonal Frequency Division Multiplexing) with adaptive bit and energy loading, we achieve a data rate of 2.85 Gb/s.Continue reading “Very High Data Rate Optical Wireless Communication with Micro Organic LED”
LINCNET: Exploring the Synergy of LiFi and Powerline Communication for Industrial and Medical Applications
The LINCNET project aims to advance LiFi (Light Fidelity) technology as a viable alternative for industry-specific applications. By harnessing the unlicensed optical spectrum, LiFi offers higher data rates in confined areas, particularly in buildings, and has the potential to provide increased security and reliability. The inherent properties of light as a wireless medium present numerous advantages for digital healthcare and industrial communication applications. Despite the demonstrated high potential of LiFi in these areas, cost-effective, integrated, and market-ready solutions are still lacking.Continue reading “LINCNET: Exploring the Synergy of LiFi and Powerline Communication for Industrial and Medical Applications”

LiFi in space
LiFi, short for Light Fidelity, is a wireless communication technology that uses visible light instead of radio waves to transmit data. LiFi is based on the principle of Visible Light Communication (VLC), where LED lights are used as transmitters to send data to a receiver, which is typically a photodiode.Continue reading “LiFi in space”
Applications for Retail, museums and public spaces
Optical Camera Communications (OCC) is a technology that allows for high-speed data transfer through visible light. The technology is popular in various industries, including retail, museums, and other locations where reliable and fast data transfer is required. OCC works by using LEDs to transmit data through light waves, which can then be received and interpreted by cameras or other optical sensors.Continue reading “Applications for Retail, museums and public spaces”
