Abstract

This paper examines how increased demand for wireless data services will cause capacity limitations within the radio frequency spectrum; the optical spectrum is viewed as an attractive solution that uses light as a transmission medium for alternative connectivity. Overall, this paper finds Li-Fi to be particularly suited to facilitating data communications. However, there is inherently scope for future research opportunities as issues surrounding the availability of 5G cellular services and disruptions to the line of sight become addressed in time.
