SAN DIEGO & DRESDEN, Germany–(BUSINESS WIRE)–IEEE 5G Summit – Firefly LiFi, a manufacturer of Visible Light Communications (VLC) LiFi products, announced that it exhibited with Teleconnect GmbH at the IEEE 5G Summit in Dresden, Germany, presenting the company’s SecureLink LiFi solutions. LiFi is one of the hottest new technologies emerging in the electronics industry, since the technology utilizes light to transmit data instead of radio frequency methods, such as WiFi. Firefly’s technology is applicable for both highly secure indoor wireless communications—such as conference room and office connectivity, healthcare, education, and industrial communications networks—and license-free outdoor video/security camera transmission, 5G small cell, and WiFi backhaul applications. LiFi provides higher throughput without the need for radio frequency spectrum or licensing. Firefly also has LiFi patents in the automotive and transportation sector. Its SecureLink system has been tested at speeds surpassing all other commercially available LiFi systems. Firefly LiFi is a Joint Venture between Teleconnect of Dresden, and LightPointe of San Diego, a top manufacturer of wireless backhaul solutions.
“LiFi technology, which impacts a multitude of commercial and consumer products, is one of the hottest sectors in the electronics industry”
“LiFi technology, which impacts a multitude of commercial and consumer products, is one of the hottest sectors in the electronics industry,” said Dr. Heinz Willebrand, CEO of Firefly LiFi, who was named to the EE Times list of “Forty Innovators Building the Foundation of the Next-Gen Electronics Industry. “Firefly LiFi has emerged as the leading manufacturer of Visible Light Communications systems, thanks to solid backing from its parent companies LightPointe and Teleconnect which have dozens of years’ experience in the commercialization of products for the electronics industry. The Joint Venture between Teleconnect and LightPointe resulted in the world’s fastest commercially available LiFi products. Our SecureLink solution, which operates at data rates exceeding 1 Gbps, are up to 25 times faster than the nearest competitor’s LiFi solution. And SecureLink is far more secure than competing LiFi systems, because it doesn’t use 802.11 WiFi protocol. Thus, we avoid the WiFi cybersecurity issues which have made WiFi so vulnerable.”
