The Li-Fi Consortium is an international organization focusing on optical wireless technologies.[1][2] It was founded by four technology-based organizations in October 2011.[3] The goal of the Li-Fi Consortium is to foster the development and distribution of (Li-Fi) optical wireless technologies such as communication, navigation, natural user interfaces and others.


As of 2012 the Li-Fi Consortium outlined a roadmap for different types of optical communication such as gigabit-class communication[4] as well as a full featured Li-Fi cloud[5] which includes many more besides wireless infrared and visible light communication.[6]
