Abstract: Data transmission is a part of our life in today’s scenario. Data communication can be carried out by wired technology and wireless technology. Radio frequency is a part of the electromagnetic spectrum, which is used for wireless communication. Many technologies are used for wireless communication such as Wi-Fi, Blue Tooth, Ad-hoc, and etc. These are all transmitting data through radio spectrum for short distance. New technology called as Li-Fi (Light-Fidelity) is going to be a major wireless communication technology in future. In the proposed system a heterogeneous network has been consider as a system model. Li-Fi technology is having the capacity of low coverage area. So, non movable wireless devices are getting better usage of Li-Fi technology in an indoor environment. For mobile devices need more number of Li-Fi access points. When the user moves from one access point to another access point covering range, the service should be continued without break. System handover is a major issue in the Li-Fi technology. If the user goes out of the range of light emission area, then the user can get the service through Wi-Fi access point. Proposed system focusing on the handover process based on the measured handover efficiency value. Data transmission can be disturbed due to some power failure or LED fault. In this situation immediately the entire load should be handled by the Wi-Fi access point. In such a situation data rate is coming down than the threshold value. So handover process will be handled by the common controller. Data rate is observed when the number of user increased and for variation in channel gain and the simulation results are analysed.
