Verizon, Nokia and Aegex Technologies host event where LiFi shows how it can sustain communications during a subway attack

As part of an initiative to solve problems in disaster response communications, Verizon, Aegex and Nokia brought together technology partners from around the world to collaborate on solutions. The objective was to bring technologies together that can help maintain business continuity, mitigate risks, potentially limit the impact of a catastrophe and – when disaster strikes – assist emergency response efforts.

 

Real technology for real world operations

The event was named Operation Convergent Response (OCR) and was held at the Guardian Centres training facility in the United States. pureLiFi demonstrated their wireless LiFi technology in a subway disaster scenario. pureLiFi technology was used to maintain, real-time, bi-directional communications that could enable communications with a command centre, thereby allowing the emergency services to maintain safe, reliable connectivity during a response.
