pureLiFi announced that it has deployed its LiFi solutions at Kyle Academy in Ayr, Scotland – making it the first school in the world to benefit from LiFi technology.

LiFi technology is a high-speed, bidirectional, secure and fully networked wireless communication that uses light, rather than radio waves used in Wi-Fi, to transmit data. By using light waves, LiFi offers unprecedented bandwidth, which significantly enhances the connectivity of the classroom to enhance the learning environment by facilitating high-bandwidth learning materials such as videos and e-books.

The installation comprises eight LiFi-enabled LED light bulbs in the ceiling and students have been given access to LiFi-XC Stations that plug into their laptops, enabling high-speed connectivity through the lights.
