Along with pureLiFi, the founding members of the LCA include Nokia, Emirates Integrated Telecommunications Company (du), LEDVANCE, Liberty Global, Lucibel, LiFi Research & Development Centre, Velmenni, Zero.1, CEA Leti, and Institut Mines-Télécom.
Light Communication technologies include Light Fidelity (LiFi) and Optical Camera Communications (OCC), both of which have been attracting increased attention over recent years.
Global Market Insights predicts that the LiFi market will be worth $75 billion by 2025, creating broad, far-reaching opportunities for the related industries to benefit from Light Communications.
For pureLiFi, a scale-up based in Edinburgh, this new alliance represents a significant milestone in LiFi’s journey to mass market adoption. At this year’s Mobile World Congress pureLiFi demonstrated Gigabit LiFi solutions in form factors small enough to be designed into mobile devices.
“The founding members of the LCA represent the highest standard in lighting and communications. pureLiFi is honoured to be a founding member alongside these industry leaders and believe the Alliance will have the influence to drive education and greatly accelerate the global adoption of LiFi. We look forward to supporting the growth of this organisation over the coming years”, expressed Alistair Banham, pureLiFi’s CEO.
“pureLiFi have deployed LiFi solutions around the world, spanning 24 countries. Our customers want to see the Light Communications ecosystem grow so that they can leverage the opportunities that will arise from global standards, certification and interoperability within this growing market. These are key for LiFi’s mass adoption. The LCA will help deliver the global consistent message our industry demands and be a significant catalyst for the growth of the LiFi market”, added pureLiFi’s CCO, Harald Burchardt.
The LCA is a non-profit organisation, open to membership from all industries spanning both light and communications including chip manufacturers, OEMs, network operators, lighting manufacturers, and light communications innovators.
