Li-Fi

Forcasted to grow to $9 Billion by 2020

Cyber security

In 2010, 4.7 trillion ($8 trillion) worth of global commerce was transacted via the
internet (McKinsey Global Institute Report, 2011).

The cost of cyber-crime to the UK has been estimated to be of the order of 27 billion
($45.9 billion) per year.

The UK Government has set aside 650 million ($1.1 billion) over four years for
a National Cyber Security Programme.

The Internet of Things


The Internet of Things will revolutionize all aspects of the modern world

The Future Internet predicted to bring between 50-100 billion ($85-170 billion)
annual benefit to the UK alone (ICT KTN Future Internet Report, 2011).

Machine-to-Machine communication by 2020 26 billion wirelessly


connected machines. Lifi is a big advantgage that lifi has, as the light spectrum is
10 thousand times larger than 30ghz radio spectrum, opens a big market.

The Internet of Things will make pervasive connections across previously


unconnected services, machines, businesses and individuals.

Digital data is growing at a CAGR of 57%, and increasingly this data needs to be
directly accessed by end users.

The Internet of Things will affect how cities are managed, businesses run, finance is
conducted and how items are manufactured.

One of the enabling components is wireless connectivity, and Li-Fi will allow high
bandwidth wireless connections to be easily made

Li-Fi offers immediate benefits towards each of the above trends


1.

The visible light spectrum is plentiful, free and unlicensed, mitigating the r.f. Spectrum
crunch effect.

2.

3.

The wide use of solid-state lighting offers an opportunity for efficient dual use lighting
and communication systems.
Li-Fi is more power efficient than radio technologies.

4.

Li-Fi signals are less prone to leakage beyond their intended environment, so offering
increased security.

5.

Li-Fi will enable many more Things to be connected to the Internet, diversifying and
increasing the number of available applications.
