Velmenni - From research to Light Speed Wireless Network LiFi Reality


What struck Deepak as a topic of research in the summer of 2011 is today a reality. Velmenni is now among one of the most valued organisations in the world of optical wireless data transmission. Founded in 2012, we are the first venture to explore the universe of visible light communications technology in India. Having relocated to Tartu, Estonia in 2014, Velmenni (P) India became our affiliate as a part of the group entity. With our prime product being LiFi, we’re disrupting the world of data communication at the speed of light!

We have managed to create a LiFi-based mesh network solution which helps in transferring data across long distances. The product makes setting up wireless networks in ground, motion & air possible, where optical cable infrastructure is difficult to implement otherwise.

Optimisation of speed efficiency and seamless connectivity within the LiFi domain


Our team has been working on LiFi for the past 5 years. It has pioneered in achieving several research and development milestones. Today, our main focus is on optimisation of speed efficiency and seamless connectivity within the LiFi domain.

Having held successful runs of LiFi technology in multiple locations, we're presently conducting pilot projects to utilise bidirectional Visible Light Communication in diverse industrial conditions. The goal remains to integrate LiFi and Wi-Fi to create impeccable, efficient and productive networks.

Creating Applied, Real-world use cases of LiFi | Velmenni


The core vision of our company is to build technology through science and research, applicative across various verticals that conclusively results in absolute global empowerment.

Of late, we have been channelising our energies on creating applied, real-world use cases and delivering proof of concepts in the aeronautics and consumer domains.

Using the current infrastructure, we strive to turn scientific research into products of value.
