Philips LiFi is a high quality LED lighting that also provides a broadband Internet connection through light waves. Philips Lighting is the Internet of Things (IoT) based lighting company.

Philips LiFi systems offer a new way to connect wirelessly using LED light. Philips Lighting’s office luminaires enabled with LiFi technology provide broadband connection with a speed of 30 Mb per second (Mb/s) without compromising lighting quality. With 30Mb/s a user can stream simultaneously several HD quality videos while having video calls.

For businesses and organisations that require a next level of internet connectivity, Philips LiFi systems offers a perfect solution. Among various applications, it adds value in areas such as banking, government, healthcare and industry. But it can also provide secure, personal connectivity for senior management or anyone concerned about data privacy.

“While radio frequencies are becoming congested, the visible light spectrum is an untapped resource with a large bandwidth suitable for the stable simultaneous connection of a vast array of Internet of Things devices. Being a lighting company, we ensure that our customers benefit from the finest quality energy efficient light along with state-of-the-art connectivity,” she added.


LiFi from Philips is a two-way, high-speed wireless technology similar to WiFi but uses light waves instead of radio waves to transmit data. Icade, has introduced LiFi to make their La Defense, Paris office smart. “LiFi has the potential to be a real game changer in offices. As the leader in our market we wanted to explore the possibilities of this technology for existing and future clients. We plan to showcase the technology in our smart office in La Defense, so aside from stable connectivity, light quality is crucial to us,” said Emmanuelle Baboulin, Head of the Commercial Property Investment Division at Icade.
