For ultra-fast deployment or redeployment of your network infrastructure.

The defense sector stands out as one of the world’s most strategic, confidential, and dynamic domains. Military operations are in a constant state of evolution, necessitating swift adoption of innovative technologies and connectivity plays a pivotal role in military infrastructure.

In defense-related operations, traditional internet connections often pose hindrances and introduce delays. The electromagnetic spectrum of radio waves in military Wifi is susceptible to lags, interceptions, unstable connectivity, and high maintenance costs. This is precisely where LiFi technology seamlessly comes into play, offering a faster, more stable, and highly secure internet for military networks.

LiFi internet, utilizing light frequency waves for data transmission, is free from electromagnetic interference, providing a more secure WiFi alternative for the military.

The advantages

Wireless optical connectivity without no electromagnetic signature

Speed

The defense sector is characteristically high-risk and time-sensitive. Reliance on traditional internet to carry out defense-related communications comes at a cost, as WiFi is prone to interception, lags, and slower speeds in many locations. LiFi can be the perfect solution for the military internet because of features such as high speed, quick deployment, simple installation process, and cost efficiency. Operations in defense are highly dynamic and rapid technological adaptation is needed to stay on track with military missions. LiFi Internet for the military can save considerable time on installation and uninstallation of the network, as well as reduce the logistical impact of establishing a secure communication channel. Moreover, the data transfer speed of LiFi internet is more than 100 times higher than military WiFi, giving it the name speed-of-light internet. LiFi can become an asset for carrying out fast-paced defense operations around the globe.

Security

Security is a top priority for most defense-related projects, as the military internet is frequently used for secret communication. Unreliable connections prone to interception can prove risky for military operations that depend on tight security to carry out their strategies. This is where LiFi comes to the rescue by working on light-based signals that are impossible to hack. LiFi internet depends on the inherent security of visible light communication to maintain high security of a network. Light signals do not interfere with traditional radio signals and cannot pass through walls. This creates a physical layer of security as only the devices in a designated coverage zone can access light internet. In addition to leveraging the characteristic features of light signals, our products use LiFi manager software for log management, and a captive portal to offer maximum privacy to military networks.

Mobility

LiFi technology is highly suitable for dynamic environments where users must move around a lot. LiFi in the military can save time and improve mobility of operations by replacing heavy cables which are indispensable for the traditional internet system. These cables are difficult to transport, tedious to install, and hinder the mobility of military stations. In contrast, LiFi internet is agile and easy setup, as it can maintain system connectivity with just a simple receptor and data-transmitting light source. With saved time of installation and simplified connectivity, LiFi for the military can power real-time activities such as navigation, machine tracking, and point-to-point communication between operation posts. So, a mobile military LiFi will improve all military operations with increased precision and reliability.

Performance

When it comes to performance, the Internet for military operations works better on light signals. In comparison to traditional military Wifi, Lifi does not rely on the over-crowded radio frequency spectrum to transmit data. This allows LiFi internet to avoid interference and stay stable even in highly dense or crowded environments. Light signals have better stability and lower latency than Wifi. This makes LiFi a superior Wifi alternative for military operations that need higher-than-average connection security and bandwidth to be a success.

Energy Efficiency

Military internet needs to establish secure connections with many devices and machines in order to run a complex set of defense operations. In this scenario, an energy-efficient network can greatly reduce the power load on electrical connections deployed on-site. LiFi technology often uses LED lights for data transmission. These are energy-efficient light sources that can be used for a dual purpose, i.e. illumination and communication. This feature results in making LiFi more environment-friendly and cost-effective by cutting down on power use. Moreover, LiFi is faster and simpler to deploy, as it can be installed without disturbing the existing infrastructure. This reduces carbon emissions as there is no need to install wiring or additional hardware to make LiFi internet effective.
