IoT Enabled by Li-Fi Technology

Authors(4) :-Sahil Nazir Pottoo, Tahir Mohammad Wani, Muneer Ahmad Dar, Sameer Ahmad Mir

Li-Fi is the high speed wireless communication technique through light emitting diodes (LEDs). Any light source anywhere can be turned into an operational Li-Fi (light) node that can communicate with the rest of the Li-Fi communication network and Internet infrastructure. Li-Fi node uses the light to enable internet users to communicate anytime anywhere in a greener, more secure, and safer manner. On the other hand, Internet of Things (IoT) emerges as a set of integrated technologies, new exciting solutions and services that are set to change the way people live. Evolution of IoT leads to the exponential growth of smart devices and sensors. These smart things require faster, secure, energy efficient data transmission. Li-Fi communication and networking technology can provide efficient and secure channel for ubiquitous communication in IoT networks. It can provide improved data rates with low energy consumption and therefore, can prove itself a true enabler of the Internet of Things.
