The second edition of the LiFi Conference, the most important global meeting for LiFi experts, took place on June 28th at the Eindhoven High Tech Campus, in the Netherlands. To Be’s representatives attended the event: we brought some of the Italian innovation experience in the Netherlands.

  To Be's case studies caught much attention at the LiFi Conference: thanks to the collaboration with institutions and the corporate world, our innovative company implemented and realized several projects in different contexts, such as the Cultural Heritage, Healthcare, and Education sectors.  

 LiFi: What is it?

LiFi is a cutting-edge technology that allows data transmission through LED light modulation. It can offer several benefits, such as large bandwidth and fast data transmission. Since it uses light and does not emit radio waves, LiFi can be ideal in environments that are hostile to interferences, such as hospitals, military buildings, and airports. In addition, since it provides connectivity by using light, that is enclosed in a specific area, LiFi prevents external hacker attacks. This makes LiFi safe and sustainable.

To Be at the LiFi Conference

The LiFi Conference was extremely relevant as it represented a global meeting point between industry and research to dive deeper into the latest trends of the market and its dynamics, as well as the potential applications of LiFi in several different sectors. Other important topics covered were the role of startups and research in the development and spread of LiFi.   The conference saw the participation of highly renowned figures at a global level, such as Harald Haas, a well-known Professor at Strathclyde University, who first coined the term "Li-Fi". Representing To Be there were Danilo Fattorini, Chief Operating Officer, and Francesco Paolo Russo, Founder, and CEO. For the occasion, we talked about Italy's contribution to the spread and development of LiFi services, particularly in sectors such as Cultural Heritage, Healthcare, and Education.   We are working on several significant LiFi projects in these fields, among which are installations in museums such as the Pompei Archeological Park, Castel Del Monte, MArTA in Taranto, and Altamura National Archeological Park, and so on. LiFi enriched visitors' experience as it guided them through exhibition paths thanks to the geolocation system, and allowed them to receive additional content on their smartphones. We also brought LiFi to several Italian schools, providing students with a fast, safe, and sustainable connection.  ASL Napoli 2 Nord, based in Pozzuoli, Ischia, and Procida, was the first Italian hospital to implement LiFi to enhance services for visitors, patients, and healthcare staff.     You can learn more about our projects and potential LiFi applications on our website: https://tobe-srl.it/en/
