WiFi has become the wireless wireless technology for connection to the internet. Any self-respecting router offers access via WiFi even with several antennas to cover the maximum space available in any room or location it is connected to.
But along with WiFi, other techniques are being developed which popularly popular 5G are announced for years, or less popular but already begin to mature to be available to the professional user.
The idea is simple. If WiFi connection is made via radio frequency waves why not use other types of waves that no one uses for communication such as light ? Although the idea did not arise from Signify before Philips Lightning, if they are among the first to offer a ready-made product with LiFi technology and available to the professional sector.
Under the name Trulifi this product is intended for offices, industry, health and generally closed environments where high speed connections are required which are reliable and, preferably, secure . But in the future, who knows if we should have LiFi connection in our homes simply install a compatible bulb.
Activating the light that illuminates any room and via a wireless adapter that sends the signal and another that receives it we can have connection to the Internet at speeds of 150 Mbps (series Trulifi 6002 ) which covers a distance of 2 meters in height and 2 meters in diameter and also from up to 250 Mbps a distance of 8 meters with colored light with the series Trulifi 6013 . Easy to install and compatible with any USB port device.
These two products connect Trulifi 6001 available since last year and offer wireless connection through light at speeds of 30 Mbps with a coverage of 2 meters distance and 2 in diameter.
Fast and secure
In addition to the speed Trulifi stands for its stability and offers fewer peaks than download and upload connectivity as a standard WiFi connection. On the other hand, the system is safer than the latter, since cannot be accessed remotely to the LiFi connector, that is, outside the location that illuminates the lamp with the LiFi adapter. And if it wasn't enough, use AES 128 encryption and the adapter we connect to the computer acts as a USB key. Briefly, all information passing through the LiFi connection is free from the common problems of a public or built-in WiFi connection.
Trulifi is not intended to replace wireless technologies such as 4G connections current WiFi connection or future 5G, but above all, it seems to be an option to look at the future, given that within a few years , since the LiFi technology was first discussed in 2011, Products offering this type of connection achieve very high speeds .
