New LED technology will make WiFi bandwidth 10 times faster

Another new technology that can increase the bandwidth of WiFi systems by 10 times, using LED lights to transmit information, has been developed.

The technology could be integrated with existing WiFi systems to reduce bandwidth problems in crowded locations, such as airport terminals or coffee shops, and in homes where several people have multiple WiFi devices.

Experts say that recent advances in LED technology have made it possible to modulate the LED light more rapidly, opening the possibility of using light for wireless transmission in a “free space” optical communication system.
