Manufacturers across the globe will be empowered to make crucial contributions to the future of LiFi technology, following Benjamin Azoulay’s appointment as Chair of the HomeGrid Forum’s LiFi Task Force.

Aiming to drive continued market growth and interoperability of LiFi technology, Azoulay and Oledcomm have been recognized by the HomeGrid Forum for their creation of – and ongoing innovations within – the G.vlc Li-Fi sector. This includes the miniaturization of LiFi technology into an ASIC chip, which enabled the technology’s seamless integration into mobile devices. This breakthrough was followed by the first ever LiFi product launch into space by a SpaceX Falcon 9 rocket in April 2023, and the development of ruggedized solutions for industrial applications.

The Ethernet Alliance, a global consortium dedicated to the continued success and advancement of Ethernet technologies, today revealed details of its upcoming exhibit at booth #1415 during the 2024 Optical Fiber Communication Conference and Exhibition (OFC). The premier global optical communications and networking expo will be held at the San Diego Convention Center, Calif., March 26-28, 2024.

With 20 industry-leading Ethernet Alliance members in attendance, and one of the organization’s most popular interoperability demos, the organization’s OFC 2024 installation showcases Ethernet’s exceptional versatility and reliability at speeds of up to 800 Gigabit Ethernet (GbE). The installation incorporates a wide range of switches, routers, interconnects and interfaces including OSFP, QSFP-DD, QSFP, and SFP pluggable form factors. The demo also features the latest in test and measurement solutions including physical layer and traffic generation tools for ensuring Ethernet’s capacity for accommodating even the most demanding applications.

Research and academic institutions can now actively contribute to the development of the Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) ecosystem, thanks to a new membership level introduced by the Avnu Alliance.

Organizations involved in TSN, as well as other deterministic networking technologies and standards, can now take an active role in Avnu Alliance Working Groups through the ‘Academic Organization/Research Institute’ membership level. This includes the development of high-priority use cases and features, and the creation of new test strategies, specifications and testbeds to demonstrate TSN technologies in real-life deployment scenarios. The new membership level also enables research and academic institutions to attend Plugfests held by the Avnu Alliance, alongside general and annual members meetings

Businesses using robotic control and industrial automation can deliver faster, safer, and more reliable operations through Time Sensitive Networking (TSN) capabilities over wireless links, as demonstrated in tests carried out by the Avnu Alliance.

Avnu Alliance members tested TSN capabilities of time synchronization (802.1AS) and traffic shaping (802.1Qbv) over Wi-Fi in industrial automation applications. During testing, a remote-controlled robotic arm was made to perform several fine manipulation tasks demonstrating the use of time synchronization and time-aware scheduling capabilities. Avnu members observed that without the 802.1Qbv capability, this task was severely impacted by competing traffic. When the TSN capability was enabled, the arm successfully completed the manipulation task even when competing traffic was present.
