Webinar: LiFi Live!

October 15, 2020 | 1:00 pm - 2:00 pm CDT

IES Chicago Section

LiFi is coming. Learn about the speed, security and dependability of LiFi.

Driven by the Internet and IoT applications there is an ever-increasing need for bandwidth. RF technologies that are widely used to provide networking access are reaching limitations due to shortcomings of the available RF spectrum. LiFi based on the visible and infrared lighting transmission is a disruptive technology to open/eliminate communications bottlenecks. This talk will give a short introduction to LiFi technology and show how LiFi is used.

Dr. Heinz Willebrand, the Chief Evangelist for LiFi Systems at Signify, is widely regarded as being among key driving visionary forces behind the Free-Space Optics (FSO) and wireless bridges movement, and is an inductee into EE Times list of “Forty Innovators Building the Foundation of the Next-Gen Electronics Industry.”
