Getac to Bring Integrated LiFi to Rugged Mobile Computing


Getac has announced that it is bringing integrated LiFi technology powered by pureLiFi to the rugged market for the first time. Customers across a wide range of professional sectors will soon be able to enjoy the benefits of fully rugged reliability and innovative LiFi connectivity in a single device, unlocking a host of powerful new applications and use cases. The first Getac device to offer integrated LiFi capability will be the recently launched UX10 fully rugged tablet.


LiFi (Light Fidelity) technology uses light to transmit data rather than radio frequency, which is the case with traditional technologies such as WiFi, LTE, 4G, 5G, etc. This innovative approach has a number of benefits over RF-based technologies including:

  • Improved privacy and security: Light can be more easily contained than radio waves, and secured in a physical space. As a result, it is much less vulnerable to hacking or hijacking, while giving greater control over network localization, asset tracking, and user authentication.
  • Superior connection quality: LiFi offers a thousand times the data density of RF-based networks, resulting in enhanced reliability and interference-free communications. LiFi also doesn’t interfere with RF signals, meaning both networks can be run simultaneously in the same physical space.
  • Extremely low latency: Light-based data connections have significantly lower latency than RF-based technology, which can radically enable innovation, automation, and the use of advanced applications including augmented reality (AR) and virtual reality (VR).
