BERLIN--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Firefly Wireless Networks, a manufacturer of Visible Light Communications (VLC) LiFi products, announced that a live demonstration of its SecureLink LiFi solution is being demonstrated by its venture partner Teleconnect at the Broadband World Forum in Berlin, Germany. SecureLink ceiling-mounted access points transmit to tabletop units using light instead of radio frequency WiFi transmission, which is prone to eavesdropping, interference, and RF congestion. This creates a much more secure wireless network ideal for corporate and government conference rooms, as well as for applications in which data transmission speed and unsurpassed signal security are critical. Teleconnect’s booth is C110A in Hall 22 at the forum.
“LiFi is the hottest technology trend in wireless communications, and our SecureLink is the fastest, most secure Visible Light Communications system on the market,” said Dr. Heinz Willebrand, CEO of Firefly. “Our SecureLink products are an order of magnitude faster than our nearest competitor’s LiFi product. We’ve tested our system at data rates exceeding 1 Gbps, which is simply in another league compared to the maximum of roughly 40 Mbps or even below advertised by the competition. In addition, SecureLink is far more secure than competing LiFi systems because it does not use the traditional RF 802.11 WiFi protocol in its design. The result is we entirely avoid the 802.11 WiFi cybersecurity issues which have recently made WiFi so vulnerable that people have been instructed not to access WiFi in some environments. In addition, the compact and portable LiFi transceivers can be equipped with an Ethernet/PoE as well as USB-C interface. Consequently, they can be placed in a broader range of applications and locations than competing solutions which utilize a less flexible dongle or fob design—which is constrained by direct connection to a laptop’s USB port and the user’s placement of the laptop. For enterprise and government wireless network applications requiring Gigabit capacity, extreme data security over an encrypted light transmission, and flexible deployment in both human and machine to machine network scenarios, Firefly is the clear choice in LiFi connectivity.”
