LiFi provides an additional layer of data protection and a reliable communications infrastructure for defense personnel operating in high-risk, demanding areas.
Intelligent Waves, the producer of the award-winning cyber-defense software GRAYPATH, has formed a strategic technology partnership with Signify (Euronext: LIGHT), the global market leader in lighting. Trulifi, a game-changing LiFi technology from Signify, and the GRAYPATH software collaborate to provide defense personnel with reliable, secure, bidirectional wireless data transfer, providing mission-critical connectivity.
GRAYPATH uses the cloud to randomize and spread data across multiple paths and encrypted channels, whilst Signify’s Trulifi solution provides physical security via USB access keys and a robust, high-speed wireless connection using light. The technological integration enables the secure transmission of data from high-risk operational sites without the possibility of interference, interception, or disruption.
“Richard Honey, Head of Trulifi by Signify sales, US Defense sector, said, “We are thrilled to offer our solution to the defense industry in conjunction with Intelligent Waves.” “Unlike traditional radio technologies like Wi-Fi and 4G/5G, light-based communication provides a significant, additional degree of security; it can be regulated inside a restricted zone and does not pass through walls.” Defense customers have already realized this benefit, with the US Army, Navy, and Marine Corps adopting our game-changing LiFi technology.”
“We’re ecstatic to be working with Signify, a lighting and light-based communication pioneer. We’ll be able to better service the most demanding and secure special operators in harsh settings as a result of our collaboration, and we’re excited to include Signify’s innovation into the platform.”Intelligent Waves’ Chief Strategy Officer, John Hammes
“LiFi can boost the Low Probability of Intercept/Low Probability of Detection attribute on the battlefield,” says Joe Vano, Transmission Group Lead, Program Management Office – Tactical Network, Technical Management Division of the US Army. Due to its small and largely undetected RF signature, this secures the Tactical Operations Center (TOC) to a greater extent while preserving high-speed connectivity within the TOC. It’s advantageous to reduce our attackers’ ability to intercept and jam the battlefield Commander’s network while yet keeping the TOC network cable-free.”
