LiFi demonstrated as a lifesaving communications technology in disaster operations16-06-2017
pureLiFi, global tech firm and leaders in LiFi technology that aims to revolutionise the future of wireless networks, has been working alongside, Verizon, Nokia and Aegex Technologies, to demonstrate how LiFi can perform under disaster situations providing communication solutions when it is most critical. At an event named Operation Convergent Response (OCR), held at the Guardian Centers training facility in the United States, pureLiFi demonstrated their wireless LiFi technology in a subway disaster scenario. LiFi technology was used to maintain, real-time, bi-directional communications that could enable communications with a command centre allowing the emergency services to maintain safe, reliable connectivity during a response.
LiFi uses light rather than radio frequencies technology such as Wi-Fi and therefore can provide wireless connectivity in areas that Wi-Fi cannot such as power plants, petrochemical facilities, and hospitals. LiFi also eliminates interference because light can be directed. pureLiFi’s systems can be simply installed alongside existing lighting infrastructures making LiFi an ideal technology for anywhere light, and communications are required, such as industrial settings. As demonstrated at the Guardian Center LiFi can also maintain safe and reliable performance under disaster situations.
