LiFi for consumer homes

Apartment buildings with many Wi-Fi networks often interfere with each other causing decreased performance for each user. In larger consumer homes it is a challenge to reach every room with a stable, high-bandwidth connection. LiFi can ease these aspect by adding high-speed hotspots at important locations, in-and around the house, like a working desk, a garden or the living room.

As a consumer LiFi product it should be cheap, easy to install and add value as an addition to existing Wi-Fi networks. ELIoT will demonstrate such a scenario with a focus on easy installation considering different technologies for its backbone and its ease of use. Additionally, the freedom of movement and added value is addressed with vertical handovers to Wi-Fi.
