LiFi technology suggests that it can be the successor to the current WiFi. This is what its developers believe, who see in this transmission system through light a viable alternative capable of improving speed, turning out to be more economical. A latent proof of this is this Android tablet capable of browsing at 3 Gbps.
The operation of the LiFi is based on a digital system that translates the binary code into light pulses using light-emitting diodes or LEDs that turn on or off millions of times per second. Li-Fi uses visible light communication technology (VLC) in the frequency range 400 to 800 TeraHertz. In addition to the advantage of transmission speed is about a hundred times higher Compared to Wi-Fi, Li-Fi’s biggest drawback is its penetration, as what blocks the light will block the waves. However, this can be a strong point when it comes to WiFi security. It has been in development for years and now reaches the market commercially through a tablet.
