Firefly LiFi Announces at Consumer Electronics Show (CES) That It is Shipping the World's Fastest Commercially Available LiFi System

Firefly LiFi, a manufacturer of Visible Light Communications (VLC) LiFi products, announced at the CES (News - Alert) show in Las Vegas that its LiFi technology is shipping now, and has been tested at speeds surpassing all other commercially available LiFi systems. LiFi is one of the hottest new technologies emerging in the consumer electronics and industrial wireless industries, since the technology utilizes light to transmit data instead of radio frequency methods, such as WiFi (News - Alert). Firefly's LiFi technology is applicable for both highly secure indoor wireless communications-such as IoT and consumer electronics wireless connectivity-and license-free outdoor 5G backhaul applications, supprting ubiquitous wireless coverage in metropolitan telecom carrier environments without the need for radio frequency spectrum or licensing. Firefly also has LiFi patents in the automotive and transportation sector.

"As the consumer electronics industry gathers for its largest tradeshow-CES-Firefly LiFi is excited to announce that our LiFi products have begun shipping and that our core technology is available for integration into a myriad of consumer and commercial products," said Dr. Heinz Willebrand, CEO of Firefly LiFi, who was named to the EE Times list of Forty Innovators Building the Foundation of the Next-Gen Electronics Industry. "LiFi is the hottest technology trend in wireless communications, and our product is the fastest, most secure Visible Light Communications system on the market. Our SecureLink products, which operate at data rates exceeding 1 Gbps, are 25 times faster than the nearest competitor's LiFi solution-which is advertised at just 40 Mbps. And SecureLink is far more secure than competing LiFi systems because it doesn't use traditional 802.11 WiFi protocol, which other LiFi systems are based on. Thus, we avoid the 802.11 WiFi cybersecurity issues which have made WiFi so vulnerable that people have been instructed not to access WiFi in some environments."

Firefly LiFi also announced that the products will be exhibited at the Global LiFi Congress tradeshow and conferences in Paris, France, February 8th and 9th.
