Wipro Lighting, part of Wipro Enterprises Ltd, has concluded an agreement with pureLiFi, global leaders in LiFi technology and commercialisation, to harness their LiFi technology to develop applications for the wireless communications and lighting market in Asia.

Wipro Lighting will now kickstart efforts to add new LiFi lighting concepts to their portfolio of innovative products with the help of pureLiFi.

Anuj Dhir, Vice-President and Business Head, Commercial Lighting Business, Wipro said: “As a leader in LED lighting solutions, we need to ensure we are providing our customers with the gold standard in lighting innovation. Our partnership with pureLiFi will provide the technology that will ensure we are at the cutting edge of the LiFi technology revolution.”

LiFi is high-speed, bi-directional, fully networked, wireless communication using visible light rather than radio frequencies. LiFi can offer significantly greater security, data rates and densities to support more robust and reliable wireless networks that complement and enhance existing cellular and Wi-Fi networks.

LiFi technology originates in Edinburgh, Scotland were pureLiFi has consistently driven innovation and released world leading products into the market such as the first LiFi dongle -- LiFi-X and a LiFi integrated luminaire which were both showcased at Mobile World Congress in March 2017.

Harald Burchardt, Chief Commercial Officer of pureLiFi, said, “Working with LED lighting forerunners like Wipro will help us bring LiFi to life in Asia and drive a new wave of connectivity that can offer unprecedented data and bandwidth."
