The new G.9991 Recommendation (“High-speed indoor visible light communication transceiver – System architecture, physical layer and data link layer specification”) recently published by ITU-T is a major step in the wide adoption of LiFi technology in different applications from home/enterprise networking to IoT.
This new Recommendation describes a low-latency, high speed communication system specifically designed to overcome the challenges of LiFi. With the publication of the Recommendation several ASIC implementations are now available leading to the first LiFi mature commercial products.

In today’s World, the most important element of success for any business, industry or even person’s life is to be connected and have realtime access to the constant stream of data being generated by the environment, devices and processes that we interact with. This means that our World becomes data-driven to enrich our decisions and planning, and give us more control over our lives.
The implementation of data-driven World through IoT/IIoT solutions has some connectivity challenges when it comes to reliable bidirectional communication, security, safety, energy consumption, bandwidth, operability, adoption, and standardization. To overcome some of these challenges, RF has started to transit from cm-wave to mm-wave known as 5th generation of RF wireless communication, or 5G. Despite of this development, due to characteristics of radio frequency, there are still several shortcomings that need to be addressed to make the connected World concept comes true.
