To accomplish the work, the need of internet either through wired or wireless network is increasing nowadays. While using wireless network i.e. Wi-Fi, many issues are arising related to speed due to which the speed of transmitting data goes relatively slow as many devices gets connected. To remedy this, Harald Hass invented technology named Li-Fi which he terms as- Data through Illumination, where the data is transferred through an LED bulb which is 1000 times faster than Wi-Fi. This technology has now become the part of VLC as this technology is performed by using white LED light bulbs.
