Due to the dramatic increase in high data rate services, and in order to meet the demands of the sixth-generation (6G) wireless networks, researchers from both academia and industry have been exploring advanced transmission techniques, new network archi-
tectures and new frequency bands, such as the millimeter wave (mmWave), the infrared, and the visible light bands. Light-fdelity (LiFi) particularly is an emerging, novel, bidirectional, high-speed and fully networked optical wireless communication (OWC) technology that has been introduced as a promising solution for 6G networks, especially for indoor connectivity, owing to the large unexploited spectrum that translates to signifcantly high data rates.
Although there has been a big leap in the maturity of the LiFi technology, there is still a considerable gap between the available LiFi technology and the required demands of 6G networks. Motivated by this, this dissertation aims to bridge between the current research literature of LiFi and the expected demands of 6G networks. Specifcally, the key goal of this dissertation is to fll some shortcomings in the LiFi technology, such as channel modeling, transceiver designs, channel state information (CSI) acquisition, localization, quality-of-service (QoS), and performance optimization. Our work is devoted to address and solve some of these limitations. Towards achieving this goal, this dissertation makes signifcant contributions to several areas of LiFi. First, it develops novel and measurements-based channel models for LiFi systems that are required for performance analysis and handover management. Second, it proposes a novel design for LiFi devices that is capable of alleviating the real behaviour of users and the impurities of indoor
propagation environments. Third, it proposes intelligent, accurate and fast joint position and orientation techniques for LiFi devices, which improve the CSI estimation process and boost the indoor location-based and navigation-based services. Then, it proposes novel proactive optimization technique that can provide near-optimal and real-time service for indoor mobile LiFi users that are running some services with high data rates, such as extended reality, video conferencing, and real-time video monitoring. Finally, it proposes advanced multiple access techniques that are capable of cancelling the efects of interference in indoor multi-user settings. The studied problems are tackled using various tools from probability and statistic theory, system design and integration theory, optimization theory, and deep learning. The Results demonstrate the efectiveness of the proposed designs, solutions, and techniques. Nevertheless, the fndings in this dissertation highlight key guidelines for the efective design of LiFi while considering their unique propagation
