Nav Wireless Technologies has established a light fidelity (LiFi) network at the Students’ Educational and Cultural Movement of Ladakh (SECMOL) to support the local education fraternity.

As per industry sources, this makes the institute the first-of-its-kind in the Union Territory to have an internet connection based on LiFi technology. In Asia, Nav Wireless Technologies is the only registered company in the LiFi sector.

The term LiFi refers to a method of transmitting data using a light beam spectrum through open space in outdoor and indoor environments.
LiFi systems provide ultra-fast data connections, and are especially useful in urban areas where radio spectra are congested and also very useful in rural areas wherein Fiber Optic Cables or networks are not reachable.

According to the company, the LiFi setup would give faculty and students faster and safer internet connections over existing electric power lines for various educational purposes.
