Do you find those blazing-fast MU-MIMO 802.11ac routers still too darn pokey? One start-up hopes to turn your light bulb into a data transfer connection capable of speeds 100 times faster than current Wi-Fi by 2020.
The company, called Velmenni, is already working on several pilot projects, including a wireless network in an office space that uses LED lights instead of radio waves to transmit data. Velmenni CEO Deepak Solanki recently told International Business Times UK that the company hopes the trials will lead to a consumer roll out over the next three to four years.
The breakthrough technology delivering these speeds is dubbed Li-Fi, and it was first publicly introduced by Professor Harald Haas of Edinburgh University four years ago.
