LiFi – the Path to a New Way of Communication

Important research efforts have been directed over the past ten years, towards exploring alternative parts of the electromagnetic spectrum that could potentially offload a large portion of the network traffic from the overcrowded radio frequency (RF) domain. The optical wireless communication (OWC) has now reached a state where it has already been demonstrated that it is a viable alternative solution to the problem of looming RF spectrum crisis. Currently, most mobile data traffic is consumed indoor, where light fidelity (LiFi) which is related to visible light communication (VLC) offers lots of specific advantages, and effective solutions to the many issues of wireless communication. The current paper summarizes most of the research conducted so far and looks at the different aspects of the strengths and weaknesses, applications, challenges, VLC IEEE standard and data modulation techniques of the VLC and specific LiFi’s new coined optical wireless communication technology.
