The world’s first integration of a Light Fidelity (LiFi) module onto a nanosatellite marks a new era for LiFi technology, HomeGrid Forum said today.

Speaking after the successful launch of the INSPIRE SAT-7 nanosatellite by SpaceX earlier this month in California, HomeGrid Forum President Livia Rosu discussed how the implementation of the SatelLife® module – developed by Oledcomm and LATMOS (Laboratoire Atmosphères, Observations Spatiales) of France – showcases the benefits LiFi technology can bring to aerospace operations.

“We would like to congratulate HomeGrid Forum member Oledcomm on its major breakthrough in intra-satellite communications and for the first launch of LiFi into space,” said Rosu. “Through the use of the SatelLife® LiFi module, space missions will now benefit from ultra-secure wireless connections and ultra-light weight. This marks the next stage of evolution for this technology, and we’re excited to see the aerospace industry utilize it for their own operations.”

The Green Grid (TGG) launched a new survey today of data center energy and water use in support of the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (U.S. EPA) ENERGY STAR® Program to update the U.S. EPA’s ENERGY STAR scoring methodology for data centers.

Data center owners and operators are encouraged to participate and contribute the data needed to update the ENERGY STAR Scoring methodology. This will enable the data center industry to continue its drive towards resource and energy efficiency improvements in its facilities, critical to the world’s fight against climate change.

Operators will be given the tools to enhance the security measures found within their data centers as a result of the new Data Center Work Group formed at the Trusted Computing Group (TCG).

Data centers play a crucial role for business operations across the globe, but they remain prime targets for cybercriminals. Should an interposer position themselves between the Central Processing Unit (CPU) and a hardware Root of Trust – such as the Trusted Platform Module (TPM) – within a data center, they can cause significant damage by gaining possession of legitimate control signaling between the CPU and the TPM. Interposers can even inject their own boot code into the CPU and wield an authorization key to fool a remote verifier to make the TPM attest the integrity of fraudulent information. This allows them to snoop, suppress and modify vital signals and measurements, and, as a result, will be able to access and exploit secrets and information from within the data center, weaponizing it against the operator.


March 9, 2023 technology helps industrial networks overcome traditional digitalization challenges by ensuring reliable connectivity and maintaining the functionality of existing infrastructure, according to new Industry Research released by HomeGrid Forum today.

HomeGrid Forum’s IIoT Task Force Members have published a new industry research document called ‘ Industrial IoT Use Cases White Paper’ which was developed in response to the proliferation of digital technology, and the presence of well-known challenges in connecting an ever-growing number of devices through traditional methods.

The Chair of HomeGrid Forum’s, Industrial IoT Task Force Chair, and Head of Research & Development at Teleconnect, Philipp Rietzsch said, “ offers not only a solution to overcome the challenges of digitalization, but also eases and accelerates the digital transition by filling the gap between old and new technologies.”
