Optical Wireless Communication, VLC Technology


The last few decades have seen rapid advances in information and communication technology. We commonly use broadband technology with high-speed Internet connectivity at our homes, offices, and in our mobile devices. The bandwidth and high-capacity requirements due to the increased use of Internet and broadband services have exceeded our expectations in twenty-first century. Optical Wireless communication (OWC) uses optical carrier in the near-infrared (IR) and visible light bands (VLC) and is considered a viable solution for realizing very high-speed and large-capacity communication links. It is a line-of-sight communication using a laser/LED to transmit the information signal between two transceivers over an unguided channel which may be either the atmosphere or free space. The technology that is used to achieve Optical Wireless Communication discussed in this paper is VLC technology (Li-Fi).
