The speed can reach 30Mbps. For example, the LiFi luminaire on the ceiling transmits data to the USB receiver on the personal computer during lighting. The LiFi bandwidth is 10,000 times more than the Wi-Fi, and the personal computer uploads data pass the USB transmit signal to the LiFi fixture on the ceiling.

Yu Yongtao, Taiwan’s Philips Lighting’s general manager and global vice president used the Interact Landmark for architectural lighting. The Bay Bridge lighting system in San Francisco, USA can control a single light, with the weather lighting system change lighting programs in different atmospheres. However, when it is snowy, the system switches to a specific lighting scene through the open API. Managers can collect the opinions of citizens or tourists, according to feedback.
