Chicago | May 4, 2018. LumEfficient, a leader in industrial LED lighting will launch its second LiFi enabled fixture next week at LIGHTFAIR, May 8-10, at McCormick Place in Chicago.
LiFi uses light to transmit Internet signals instead of slower, more vulnerable radio signals used by standard WiFi. LumEfficient’s LiFi technology enables the deployment of a full wireless network offering high-speed mobile connectivity within a network while supporting multiple light fixtures that act as access points.
Randy Reid, President of LumEfficient, said, “We were honored to be the first U.S. Lighting company to introduce LiFi earlier this year at LEDucation, and we are excited to demonstrate it for the 25,000 attendees of LIGHTFAIR, the largest, most prestigious lighting show in North America.”
LumEfficient has partnered with the French company, OLEDcomm to bring the MyLifi lamp to the U.S. market. The light is simple in that it uses Power-over-Ethernet (POE) to provide the light as well as the Internet connection. The Internet is actually transmitted using beams of light from the LiFi enabled LED light fixture to the laptop or tablet.
Reid stated he plans to launch LiFi in industrial grade fixtures later this year.
LumEfficient was the first U.S. Lighting Company to launch LiFi earlier this year at LEDucation in New York.
