May 16, 2019, celebrated the second anniversary of the International Day of Light. The United Nations Educational, Scientific, and Cultural Organization (UNESCO) officially observes the International Light Day, which offers an ongoing focus for continuous recognition of the light. They also tackled the part it performs in mathematics, society and architecture, healthcare and viable growth and varied areas such as medicine and transport and energy.
The vast subject of light enables many sectors of society to engage in operations around the world that demonstrate the extent to which science, architecture, and culture can contribute to UNESCO’s objectives. UNESCO’s goals mainly focus on schooling, fairness, and harmony between different nationalities.
The Partnership Of pureLiFi and IOP
The Physics Institute is a science charity that operates to promote education in science, discovery, and implementation. It was established in 1874 and currently has more than 50,000 members globally. The IOP promotes teaching, study, and business biology. Moreover, the IOP offers guidance and skilled growth to its employees and provides the qualified status of Chartered Physics as well as Chartered Engineering as a nominated entity for the Engineering Council.
Going back to this year’s International Day of Light, May 16, 2019, the company partnered with the Institute of Physics. Together, both organizations opened an acceleration center filled with various LiFi equipment aimed at promoting the technology.
pureLiFi aims to resolve the global struggle for diminishing wireless capacity, which may result in a spectrum crunch.
The Risks of a Looming Spectrum Crunch
The threat of a spectrum crunch in the near future is a real threat. It occurs where the already saturated radio frequency spectrum runs out of available frequencies, with no other piece of technology available to provide additional frequencies in which other technologies can operate.
Speaking on the looming spectrum crunch, Prof. Harald Haas talked about the benefits of LiFi, highlighting its many applications in various industries. Haas presented a few case studies that focused on its applications in retail, defense, transport, and manufacturing, among others.
From its humble beginnings, starting with just a few researchers in a laboratory to increasing scale-ups, Prof. Haas spoke on the evolution of pureLiFi, which now has 133 projects in over 23 countries around the world. Haas also showcased pureLiFi’s evolution in terms of its LiFi product offerings, from its bulky Li-1st dongle to the mighty GigaLiFi chip.
As the talk progressed, Haas discussed LiFi’s vast potential in transforming various industries and its possible ubiquity as a technology.
“We actually see LiFi in every light bulb, every car, every street, every smartphone, every toaster, everywhere. It will connect us,” Haas said. “It will be the nervous system that enable the industrial revolution.”
Alistair, pureLiFi’s CEO, also expressed that his objective as the leader in the business was for it to stay ahead of the competition.
“I’m pushing integration, increasing performance, making power down, making small enough, making sure we get into small mobile devices,” Alistair professed.
