Achieving high data transmission rate, energy efficiency and secure connectivity is the demand of many network applications including Military warehouses and distribution centers. To overcome these we propose VLC-UWB hybrid (VUH) network technology which utilizes Ultra-Wide Band (UWB) as primary transmission link (up-link and down-link) and visible Light Communication (VLC) for verification of received down-link packet. VLC facilitates the great advantage of being able to jointly perform illumination and communication at little extra energy. On the other hand UWB is a low power network technology that operates between 3.1 - 10.6 GHz, utilizing about 1mW for signal transmission. The combination of these two network technologies holds the potential of secure connection and high data rate with minimal energy consumption, within an indoor industrial environment.
