Wi-Fi networks are now everywhere around us, but Wi-Fi speed is getting less satisfactory in many public places due to limited speed. However, this may soon change. Wifi Network researchers recently announced that their Wi-Fi bandwidth with the integration of LED lighting technology will expand 10 times.
How to Increase WiFi Speed 10 Times Faster? Using LED Lighting.
It is reported that this new technology is called WiFO, developed by researchers from Oregon State University. WiFO is function using LED’s ability to produce the invisible light in common lighting, and used in the transmission of the data. Current WiFO prototype looked like ordinary LED ceiling lamp, but researchers said that each device connected to the WiFO 50-100GB data rates are available.
Existing Wi-Fi system data transfer speed will be divided according to the number of connected devices. For example, in 100Mbps access Wi-Fi. If you have 10 devices, each device that can receive only attains a maximum speed of 10Mbps. Researchers said WiFO the bandwidth per user can be increased 10 times, so as to solve the problem.
In addition to faster transmission speed, WiFO system can also be integrated with existing Wi-Fi system, at very low cost. Currently, the team has acquired the patents and was looking for a business partner and sponsor.
