LiFi can be so easy – Using VLC in the retail

In contrast to wide spread data transfer methods such as WiFi, LiFi offers additional advantages, for example a higher data density for data transfers. Thus, the transmission speed is improved and the application is also possible in highly frequented places. This optical data transfer, also called VLC (Visible Light Communications), especially fits for applications in the retail sector.

The use of VLC is uncomplicated: LED-luminaires, a software as well as access points for the data transfer are required; a small ceiling distributor contains all hardware components (router, power supply and the PoE-switch). Connected with luminaires and access points, the VLC-application is realized fast and easy.

In combination with software partners and the lighting industry, Wieland Electric provides the related hardware for customized VLC-solutions. You can see a sample application at the EuroShop trade fair from 5 to 9 March at the Wieland Electric booth in hall 9/booth B44.
