But that may all change with the newly tested technology of "li-fi", which can achieve stable speeds up to 100 times faster than wi-fi. Well, scientists have just announced they have innovated a form of wireless computer communications that they claim to be 100 times faster than Wi-fi. The data was received by a binary code by flashing LED lights on and off by creating a morse code. The new wireless technology uses Visible Light Communication (VLC) or infra-red and near ultra violet spectrum.
"When a constant current is applied to an LED [light-emitting-diode] lightbulb, a constant stream of photons are emitted from the bulb which is observed as visible light. We're also performing a pilot project having a personal client where we're establishing a Lifi system to get into the Internet within their workplace space". "We only had to keep your micro-control board in front of the laptop screen (GUI) and the data was transferred wirelessly using visible light communication". Today, professionals took Li Fi out of the research for that first time, screening it in offices and professional situations. Because gentle can not pass through surfaces, think about it, that you don't have to be anxious about your annoying neighbour looking to compromise into your internet and stealing knowledge. Rather, the two systems may be applied together to accomplish secure and more effective systems. That address was delivered four years ago, and many people speculated that, like a lot of apparent revolutionary breakthroughs, Li-Fi would go the way of other "next big things" and not come to fruition.
But the technology also has its drawbacks - most notably the fact that it can not be deployed outdoors in direct sunlight, because that would interfere with its signal. Li-Fi is a bidirectional, fully networked wireless communication technology similar to Wi-Fi, which works at very high speed.
