Light Communications Alliance forms to drive LiFi and OCC

July 09, 2019 // By Julien Happich
Scottish LiFi pioneer pureLiFi has teamed up with communications and lighting leaders to form a global association called the Light Communications Alliance (LCA) with the aim to develop and refine LiFi’s key use cases while driving standards for this emerging industry.

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.
