Overview

The IEEE 802.15.13 Multi-Gigabit/s Optical Wireless Communications Task Group defines a Physical (PHY) and Media Access Control (MAC) layer using light wavelengths from 10,000 nm to 190 nm in optically transparent media for optical wireless communications. The standard is capable of delivering data rates up to 10 Gbit/s at distances in the range of 200 meters unrestricted line of sight. It is designed for point to point and point to multi point communications in both non-coordinated and coordinated topologies. For coordinated topologies with more than one peer coordinator there will be a master coordinator. The standard includes adaptation to varying channel conditions and maintaining connectivity while moving within the range of a single coordinator or moving between coordinators. TG13 continues work concerning High-rate PD communications (also denoted as Li-Fi) done previously within TG7r1 focussing on optical camara communications (OCC). The inaugural meeting was held during the May 2017 interim in Daejeon (Korea).
