  • CABIN LIFI BY LATÉCOÈRE.

    LATÉCOÈRE has developed a simple resilient and cost-efficient infrastructure solution which allows airlines to optimize on-board connectivity. LiFi optical communication technology redefines the way passengers can access and send data onboard as an alternative to WiFi. This LiFi infrastructure will allow a simple and fast installation solution, both for linefit and retrofit A/C installation. For one single seat, both uplink and downlink data rates will be provided through a dedicated optical fiber in order not to affect existing passenger service units equipment.
