Acquired at the end of 2016, the French company and all of its eight employees have been relocated to Philips Lighting headquarters in Eindhoven.

Philips is expected to invest in the Luciom technology in a push toward commercializing it. Once Li-Fi takes hold, it could complement Wi-Fi in large part by opening much more frequency to Internet use, without interference issues.
