Getac partners with pureLiFi to bring rugged LiFi devices to the market

1 min read

Getac has announced that it is working with pureLiFi to evaluate the technology for design into future rugged wireless devices.

LiFi enables data transmission via light rather than radio waves at high-speeds. This creates a high-speed Internet connection that is more secure, reliable, and able to deliver bandwidth far beyond the capabilities of conventional wireless communications such as Wi-Fi.

This partnership will look to create LiFi-enabled rugged tablets and PCs for the military, manufacturing and automotive industries.

"Getac's partnership with pureLiFi will make us the pioneer in the rugged devices industry to tap on the potential of next-generation connectivity, strengthening our commitment to customers operating in extreme and challenging environments," said Amanda Ward, Director of EMEA Products and Solutions, Getac. "We look forward to leveraging on this highly innovative technology to provide customers with secure and reliable products that will further enhance productivity and safety in the workplace."

"In 2019, pureLiFi launched components for integration into mobile devices aligned with our strategy to provide LiFi for every device and every light," said Nikola Serafimovski, pureLiFi VP of Standardisation and Business Development. "As leading providers of rugged devices in key industries that can benefit greatly from LiFi, Getac are embracing this strategy. Getac will be the first device company to put LiFi onto their product roadmap and deliver to their customers unprecedented security, reliability and bandwidth by doing so."

Getac will continue to evaluate LiFi with customers to understand the best use cases for this technology.
