LiFi transmits data ten times faster than WiFi

French company Oledcomm showcased new LiFi technology at CES 2014.

The tech switches lamps on and off within nanoseconds to transfer high-speed data.

“From your LED lighting device, you will be able to: send data, listen music, look at videos and ultimately to connect to Internet,” explains the firm.

At the show, the Oledcomm displayed a modified smartphone with its front-facing camera swapped out for a light sensor.

The speed of the on and off switching of the LED is converted in terms of data rates, this corresponds to 1 Gbits/s, which is ten times faster than WiFi.
