Signify and EDZCOM have formed a partnership to create two-way wireless network connectivity through infrared and visible light, known as Li-Fi, for the industrial market.
Under the agreement, the brand of Li-Fi offerings called Trulifi will be available for manufacturing industries.
Li-Fi provides high speed communication in places where radio frequencies may interfere with equipment — like hospitals or factories — or where Wi-Fi signals are weak. Li-Fi is designed to use light emitting diode (LED) bulbs that are outfitted with a chip that modulates the light for optical data transmissions. Li-Fi data is transmitted by the LED bulbs and to the receivers of smart devices, laptops, smart TVs and any other device that has a data connection.
EDZCOM builds private wireless networks at the edge, connecting assets, equipment and people in challenging environments such as manufacturing, mining and oil and gas industries, logistics hubs and the energy generation sector. Signify’s Li-Fi offers immunity to interference, unlike conventional radio technologies like Wi-Fi and 4G/5G.
Signify has already implemented Li-Fi in more than 150 projects worldwide and EDZCOM operates private wireless solutions and 27 live industrial implementations of its connectivity in Nordic countries.
