Mexico, the first country to commercialize Li-Fi technology

Mexico is the first country to commercialize Li-Fi connection technology, which allows transmission of audio, video and Internet of up to 15 megabytes per second through the service called LedCom that the company Sisoft of Mexico will offer since this month.

Countries such as Russia, the United States, Israel and China are committed to this revolutionary technology that changes the way of transmitting Internet, but Mexico is the first to market and adapt the technology  for its daily use, said Arturo Campos Fentanes, CEO of Mexico Sisoft.

Li-Fi technology, or light fidelity, transmits data wirelessly through visible LED light (LV), replacing the modem and Wi-Fi signals.

"Imagine having Internet through each luminaire, avoiding the problems of speed and bandwidth being saturated because everyone is connected," said Arturo Campos, and emphasized that it is self-sustaining technology because changing lamps to LED light reduces energy consumption, generating savings that would go to the payment for the system.

In addition, the transmission rate increases from 200 megabytes per second in Mexico to 10 gigabytes per second in some cases, equivalent to downloading an HD movie in just 30 seconds, although the speed depends on the provider company.

To transmit Internet, Sisoft chips are designed to take the signal from the router (network distribution device) and send it through the halo of light emitted by LEDs to a USB which functions as a data receiver for the computer.

Sisoft of Mexico expects to produce 10,000 chips per month and reach distributors, bunks salers, companies, corporations, hospitals and homes, as well as every place of difficult access to the Internet.

Campos said there are different kits ranging from five lamps to the complete lighting of a home or office, ensuring data transmission.

Costs depend on the type of luminaire and range from 50 to 400 dollars, including the sender, receiver and installation. Also, the bulbs have a lifespan of two years.

"We intend for the lamps to be aesthetic but fulfill the conditions of light intensity to perform optimal data delivery. In addition, we have a product that stores the technology in a single desk lamp and has a receiver inside."
