What is LiFi?

Light-Fidelity (LiFi) takes visible light communication (VLC) further by using light emitting diodes (LEDs) to realise fully networked wireless systems. Synergies are harnessed as lights become LiFi attocells resulting in enhanced wireless capacity for the Internet-of-Things (IoT), 5th generation (5G) and beyond.

We will present an invited paper at ECOC 2015 entitled “What is LiFi?” We aim to shed some light on the relation between visible light communication (VLC) and LiFi as both abbreviations describe slightly different things, and, therefore, cannot be used as synonyms.
