Kumbh 2021: Nav Wireless to set up world's first LiFi street poles in Haridwar

Ahmedabad, Feb 20 (UNI) Gujarat based Nav Wireless Technologies Pvt Ltd is going to set up revolutionary Light Fidelity (LiFi) technology-enabled street light poles in the city of Haridwar before next year's Kumbh mela that would prove to be very helpful to lakhs of pilgrims, Founder and Inventor of the company Hardik Soni said on Thursday.
'' Next year when you visit the divine Kumbh Mela at Haridwar, you should not be surprised to see people getting live Ganga aarti, important announcements free of cost, high-speed internet everywhere and smooth functioning of local machineries. Anticipating huge turnout of the devotees at next year's Kumbh Mela, we assume that around 5,000 LiFi powered street poles would be required across the Haridwar. LiFi technology has the potential to change the entire smart city concept across India. We are now planning to approach authorities in various cities to provide similar solutions. Talks are in advance stage with Ahmedabad and Dehradun civic authorities'', he said.
''These would not be just white-light-emitting poles. Compared to existing 4G-5G internet, these poles would provide internet connectivity at lightning speed. It's completely weatherproof poles and doesn't require any further infrastructure. Through a normal street light pole, the people in Haridwar would be able to access live streaming of Ganga Aarti apart from accessing multiple useful services from the lightning-fast internet connection. There will be in-built wireless speakers for a centralided public address system to make regular or specific announcements. With an emergency in-built emergency response support system, the Mela management would make sure to communicate and respond to any emergency that arises during the festival'', he further said.
