VLC to Replace Wi-Fi? Sounds like Sci-Fi

“The Goal: Every light bulb in the world act as VLC device!”

If you are wondering about the term Visible Light Communication itself, the term VLC is a wireless optical networking technology uses visible light for data transmission and which have faster speed than traditional WiFi. At speeds like this, albums, high-definition films and even video games could be downloaded in a matter of seconds.

The speed is down to the way in which it transmits data by using VLC, data is sent between networks by LED lights that flicker very fast.

“VLC: Just a Free Space Transmission.”

Where it will be getting used?: Potential applications of VLC include Li-Fi, mobile connectivity, location based services, Smart lighting, vehicle to vehicle communication, robots in hospitals, underwater communication and information displayed on sign boards and Visible light ID system

However, the biggest challenge is that VLC don’t travel through walls or tolerate line of sight “blockage”. Moreover, how optimally VLC will transfer data back to the transmitter is yet another cause of concern. Well, rather than with Wi-fi routers, proposed setup of VLC technology would need to include antennas in multiple locations, so that when a user moves out of the line of sight another could take over.

Use Smart Street Lights as VLC Network: The adoption of connected (smart) street light is particularly gaining traction in urban areas for efficient lighting solutions. Use of connected street lights as VLC network is a latest trend in smart cities.

During the forecast period, the global visible light communication market is anticipated to expand at a CAGR of 109.2%.

“In the future we will not only have bn’s light bulbs, we may have billion’s of VLC’s deployed worldwide for a cleaner, greener and brighter future.”
