Internet from light bulbs: in Estonia began using light to transmit data 100 times faster Wi-Fi
7 декабря 2015 года
Startup Velmenni began testing technology of high-speed wireless data transmission Li-Fi. The technology is already available for testing in offices and industrial areas of Tallinn. In field conditions, the transmission rate reaches 1 GB/s, 100 times the speed of standard Wi-Fi connection.
Li-Fi – a new wireless communications technology (“light” – “light” and “fidelity” – “precision”), which makes use of a cheap and reliable way to connect to a global network with special LEDs from virtually anywhere. The project, which explored innovative technology, initiated by the universities of Oxford, Cambridge and Edinburgh. And is funded by the British research Council in the field of physical Sciences and engineering.
