Li-Fi is touted as a boon to China’s internet community, the highest in the world with about 600 million connections. Chinese scientists have successfully developed a new cheaper way of getting connected to internet by using signals sent through light bulbs instead of radio frequencies as in ‘Wi-Fi’, a move expected to radically change process of online connectivity. Under the new discovery dubbed as ‘Li-Fi’, a light bulb with embedded microchips can produce data rates as fast as 150 megabits per second, which is speedier than the average broadband connection in China. The term Li-Fi was coined by Harald Haas from the University of Edinburgh in the UK and refers to a type of visible light communication technology that delivers a networked, mobile, high-speed communication solution in a similar manner as Wi-Fi. Li-Fi is cost-effective as well as efficient. The Li-Fi kits will be on display at the China International Industry Fair that will kick off on November 5 in Shanghai. The current wireless signal transmission equipment is expensive and low in efficiency.
