Background

Light Communication is a new Technical Interest Group (TIG) within the IEEE 802.11 working group that aims to determine the technical and economic opportunity presented by using the light medium for wireless communications. The introduction of light emitting diodes (LED) for general purpose lighting has created a growing interest in using the visible light spectrum for wireless communications.

Goals

The goal of the Topic Interest Group is to determine the technical and economic opportunity presented by using the light medium for wireless communications.

It is felt that the IEEE 802.11 is the best forum to drive forward the global standardization efforts for light communications with manufacturers, operators and end customers all present druing the standardization process. If the TIG should progress to a Study Group and eventually into a Task Group, then this will not only help users within home, enterprise and industrial environments, but also assist manufacturers and operators to provide common components and services for IEEE 802.11 customers.
