Li-Fi uses light rather than radio frequencies, such as Wi-Fi, to provide wireless connectivity in areas that Wi-Fi cannot reach such as power plants, petrochemical facilities and hospitals. PureLiFi teamed up with Verizon, Nokia and Aegex Technologies to host the attack scenario and demonstrate sustained communication during a terrorist outrage.

The event, code named Operation Convergent Response, tested Li-Fi’s ability to maintain a real-time, bi-directional communications network that would be able to enable a communications and command center to take charge of a developing situation. The test also monitored the ability of Li-Fi to maintain communication between emergency services and central command.

‘This latest test proves that Li-Fi can provide reliable wireless communications in unpredictable conditions such as disaster circumstances,” said Alistair Banham, CEO of PureLifi. “PureLiFi demonstrated that Li-Fi solutions could perform under real-life operations and enable critical communications during response missions in chaotic and disastrous environments.”
