Firefly Wireless Networks Showcases Its Visible Light Communications LiFi Products, with Data Rates Up to 1.8 Gbps, at Hannover Messe Tradeshow

Hannover, Germany, April 25, 2017 –(– Firefly Wireless Networks, a leading manufacturer of Visible Light Communications (VLC) and LiFi products, announced that it is demonstrating its LiFi products at the Hannover Messe technology tradeshow this week. Firefly is displaying its second generation SecureLink LiFi access points and client units, which are the fastest and most advanced Visible Light Communications products available in the industry at up to 1.8 Gbps. LiFi utilizes light to transmit data more securely and faster than traditional WiFi radio frequency solutions, while also avoiding RF interference and congestion issues associated with WiFi. Protecting the sensitive information and network access of an organization has never been more important, with cyber security breaches and information theft being reported almost daily. The most vulnerable aspect of a network is its wireless transmissions.

“We are excited to unveil our 2nd generation SecureLink system at the Hannover Messe tradeshow,” said Dr. Heinz Willebrand, CEO of Firefly Wireless Networks. “Visible Light Communications solutions are the hottest new data communications technology due to a myriad of advantages resulting from the use of light spectrum over radio frequency spectrum. Traditional WiFi systems are prone to eavesdropping within and outside an organization’s building. It is also susceptible to radio frequency interference and congestion, as RF spectrum use has become crowded and has created bottlenecks within networks. Firefly Wireless Networks has solved these challenges with the world’s highest performance VLC solutions, offering the fastest data rates in the industry at up to 1.8 Gigabits per second, which far exceeds all WiFi technologies. And, compared to competing solutions, SecureLink is small, aesthetically attractive, and easy to install.”

Firefly Wireless Networks has already developed and tested its SecureLink solutions for conference room and office environments requiring the absolute best security and avoidance of eavesdropping. The company is also developing partner relationships in other industry sectors such as building technology providers, factory automation (Industry 4.0 and cyber-physical systems), consumer electronics, the Internet of Things, in-flight aircraft communications systems, military and underwater solutions, and transportation related applications such as train stations and automobile communications, which the company holds key patents on.
