Unveiled: The downlight with built-in Li-Fi

A REVOLUTIONARY downlight which enables internet access through light rather than radio waves has been unveiled by French manufacturer Lucibel.

The luminaire, which has a Cat 6 cable port and a built-in Li-Fi transceiver – can offer internet speeds of up to 54 Mbps to devices using the linked dongle. This ‘generation two’ light fitting – part of a range of units –  builds on the very first Li-Fi luminaires which were launched at the LuxLive exhibition in London in 2017.

PureLiFi, the pioneering technology company using light to create next-generation wireless networks, has provided its Li-Fi technology for the range, which includes LED panels and other commercial form factors.

This new generation offers a boost in internet speed of 54 Mbps compared with 42 Mbps for the first generation. Other improved features include an increase in the number of users simultaneously able to benefit from a secure connection.

The product design allows a better integration of the lighting and connectivity functionalities. Additionally, Power over Ethernet (PoE) technology, which eliminates the need for an electrical cable, is now integrated natively in the Li-Fi luminaires, so the fittings can receive both power and data on the same Cat cable.

‘We congratulate Lucibel on the launch of this second generation of products,’ Alistair Banham, CEO of pureLiFi, told Lux. ‘And we’re delighted to have once again provided our Li-Fi technology. We’ve achieved a more efficient, 30 per cent faster LiFi module with easy integration into Lucibel’s fantastic design. The result is a product that is more viable than ever as a solution to provide internet access through light.’

Frédéric Granotier, founder and CEO of Lucibel, said: ‘With the launch of this second generation, Lucibel continues to pioneer LiFi lighting products and stays ahead of its competitors. With the significant advancements of this new solution, and a base of more than 100 customers who have validated the first generation, we are confident of rolling out this new product more widely. 

‘We are pleased to be working again with pureLiFi and look forward to the continuing success of the relationship.’

My names are Ashley Vivian, Am here to share a testimony on how Dr Raypower helped me. After 1/5 year relationship with my boyfriend, he changed suddenly and stopped contacting me regularly, he would come up with excuses of not seeing me all the time. He stopped answering my calls and my sms and he stopped seeing me regularly. I then started catching him with different girls several times but every time he would say that he love me and that he needed some time to think about our relationship. But cannot stop thinking about him so i decided to go online and i saw so many good talk about this spell caster called Dr Raypower and i contact him and explain my problems to him. He cast a love spell for me which i use and after 24 hours, my boyfriend came back to me and started contacting me regularly and we moved in together after a few months and he was more open to me than before and he started spending more time with me than his friends. We eventually got married and we now have been married happily for 3 years with a son. Ever since Dr Raypower helped me, my partner is very stable, faithful and closer to me than before.You can also contact this spell caster and get your relationship fix Email: Urgentspellcast@gmail.com or Urgentspellcast@yahoo.com see more reviews about him on his website: http://urgentspellcast.website2.me Call or WhatsApp: +1 (424) 330-8109 also view his blog: https://urgentpowerfullovespell.blogspot.com/
