Today, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) added 802.11bb as a standard for optical-based wireless communications. Publication of this standard welcomed Used by global Li-Fi businesses to help accelerate the deployment and adoption of data transmission technology standards.
The benefits of using light rather than radio frequency (RF) are highlighted by Li-Fi advocates such as pureLiFi, Fraunhofer HHI, and the Optical Communication 802.11bb Task Group. Li-Fi is said to enable “faster, more reliable wireless communication with unparalleled security compared to legacy technologies such as Wi-Fi and 5G.” Now that the IEEE 802.11bb Li-Fi standard has been released, it is expected that interoperability between Li-Fi systems and successful Wi-Fi will be fully resolved.
Of course, Li-Fi isn’t going to wipe out Wi-Fi and 5G alternatives (even wired networks). Radio waves still have distinct advantages in penetrating great distances in the atmosphere and through opaque objects. Instead, you should focus on using horses on the course while taking advantage of Li-Fi where possible.
In the Fraunhofer HHI video above, you can see a Li-Fi system reusing a building’s lighting infrastructure for data. Rest assured that the light will not visibly flicker or flicker as part of the infrared spectrum is used for data transmission.
Li-Fi is better (just kidding) for more than its lauded speeds Up to 224 GB/s. Fraunhofer’s Dominic Schultz points out that operating in a dedicated optical spectrum ensures higher reliability and lower delay and jitter. Furthermore, “line-of-sight propagation of light prevents penetration through walls, reduces the risk of jamming and eavesdropping, and enhances security by enabling centimeter-precise indoor navigation,” Schultz said.

The publication of the IEEE 802.11bb standard has given manufacturers greater confidence in the ecosystem to start integrating the technology as needed. One of his on the big wheel of Li-Fi, pureLiFi, is already Light Antenna ONE Module For integration into connected devices. This 14.5mm long component (pictured above and above) is now available to OEMs for evaluation. In promotional materials, the company prefers his Li-Fi over Wi-Fi for more connections without congestion, better security and privacy, and heavy-duty execution of max-bandwidth tasks. suggests.
Between now and next February’s MWC, we expect to see a wider range of Li-Fi network devices and user devices supporting the standard.
