Wipro Light­ing to launch wi-fi tech in­te­gra­tion in its com­mer­cial of­fer­ings

Con­clud­ing an agree­ment with pureLiFiglobal lead­ers in LiFi tech­nol­ogy and com­mer­cial­i­sa­tion, Wipro Light­ing, part of Wipro En­ter­prises (P) Lim­ited and a player in light­ing in In­dia, is slated to har­ness their LiFi tech­nol­ogy to de­velop ap­pli­ca­tions for the wire­less com­mu­ni­ca­tions and light­ing mar­ket in Asia. Wipro Light­ing is cur­rently de­vel­op­ing new rev­o­lu­tion­ary LiFi light­ing con­cepts to their port­fo­lio of in­no­va­tive prod­ucts with the help of pureLiFi.

Anuj Dhir, Vice Pres­i­dent & Busi­ness Head Com­mer­cial Light­ing Busi­ness of Wipro said, “As a leader in LED light­ing so­lu­tions, we need to en­sure we are pro­vid­ing our cus­tomers with the gold stan­dard in light­ing in­no­va­tion. Our part­ner­ship with pureLiFi will pro­vide the tech­nol­ogy that will en­sure we are at the cut­ting edge of the LiFi tech­nol­ogy revo­lu­tion.”

LiFi is high-speed bidi­rec­tional fully net­worked, wire­less com­mu­ni­ca­tions us­ing vis­i­ble light rather than ra­dio fre­quen­cies. LiFi can of­fer sig­nif­i­cantly greater se­cu­rity, data rates and den­si­ties to sup­port more ro­bust and re­li­able wire­less net­works that com­ple­ment and en­hance ex­ist­ing cel­lu­lar and Wi-Fi net­works. LiFi tech­nol­ogy orig­i­nates in Ed­in­burgh, Scot­land where pureLiFi has con­sis­tently driven in­no­va­tion and re­leased world lead­ing prod­ucts to the mar­ket such as the first LiFi don­gle -- LiFi-X and a LiFi in­te­grated lu­mi­naire which were both show­cased at Mo­bile World Congress in March 2017.

Har­ald Bur­chardt, Chief Com­mer­cial Of­fi­cer, pureLiFi said, “Work­ing with LED light­ing fore­run­ners like Wipro will help us bring LiFi to life in Asia and drive a new wave of con­nec­tiv­ity that can of­fer un­prece­dented data and band­width.” Each year the world uses 60% more wire­less data than the pre­vi­ous one, and the num­ber of con­nected de­vices such as mo­bile phones and smart de­vices is grow­ing ex­po­nen­tially, likely to be in ex­cess of 50 bil­lion by 2020. Ac­cord­ing to re­ports and shared by pureLiFi of­fi­cials, If in­ter­net users are go­ing to con­tinue to live in the wire­less cloud with wear­ables, vir­tual re­al­ity and in a fully con­nected world, there’s a cru­cial need of new wire­less tech­nol­ogy such as LiFi in order to re­al­ize this fu­ture.
