An introduction to Li-Fi; Analysis and review of the new IEEE 802.11 bb standard

July 8 @ 5:30 pm - 6:30 pm

An introduction to Li-Fi; Analysis and review of the new IEEE 802.11 bb standard:
Abstract: We will begin by reviewing a brief overview of the current state of Li-Fi technology, the overall picture of previous Li-fi systems, and ongoing research and industrial solutions. Then, we will cover the IEEE 802.11 bb PHY standard and its new definitions. This talk will cover the main topics of the standard: channel access, multiplexing methods, wavelength ranges, and TX/RX methods.
Eventually, we will propose Light Links' commercial approach for a hybrid, easy-to-implement Light Communication (LC) system derived from the IEEE 802.11 bb standard with the addition of a MAC layer protocol to enable co-existence with previous IEEE 802.11 standards.
Firouz Vafadari, CEO and founder of Light Links Inc., is a second-year Ph.D. student at UCSC and—the previous founder of a networking company in the Middle East.
Tyler B. Morton, CTO, and co-founder at Light Links Inc., is a first-year Ph.D. student at UCSC with an internship background at the U.S. Navy and DoD.
At Light Links Inc., we make light communication as accessible and reliable as Wi-Fi with our hardware and protocol solution. We propose a plug-and-play hybrid AP and protocol set that enables users to enjoy light communication as a complementary technology to Wi-Fi. Our company is the first to provide B2C solutions for indoor wireless communication.
