LiFi to supplement 5G: Page 2 of 2

Vodafone and Signify (formerly Philips Lighting) have joined forces to combine the communication power of 5G and LiFi, providing their customers with more speed and better mobile broadband connectivity.

The combination of 5G and LiFi enables reliable and secure high-speed wireless communication with low latency in areas where certain radio frequencies are performing poorly due to critical environments or when wireless communications are not allowed at all due to safety regulations. In addition, fault-tolerant systems and services are better equipped to withstand network outages - the two communication technologies can be ubiquitous through inter-system handovers.

Also conceivable are applications in autonomous driving where vehicle-to-vehicle (V2V) and vehicle-to-infrastructure (V2X) networks enable direct communication between vehicles and the environment in order to increase safety and comfort in road traffic. The basis for connecting devices, machines and vehicles is a fixed point-to-point network that acts as a "wireless cable" and complements the Trulifi range.
