Wireless data transfer record smashed

Siemens now holds the world record of having the fastest wireless data transfer after breaking their previous efforts, hitting a whopping 500 Mbps using white LED light. Researchers at Siemens relied on 500 light intensity fluctuations per second that are readable by a photodetector receiver, and is well capable of transmitting data over longer distances at a rate of 100 Mbps. Known as Visible Light Communication, this type of data communication could find a place in hospitals as that building is notoriously known as a big “no wireless” sign. Currently, the Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers are working to standardize VLC activity. Keep our fingers crossed that they will be done with it before the year is over.
