This paper proposes an idea of a wireless Heterogeneous Network (HetNet) in an indoor environment for increasing the spectrum efficiency due to the ever-increasing demand of bandwidth. Most of the data is consumed indoors and wireless HetNets in an indoor environment will provide high quality of service thus satisfying the spectrum needs. The use of light as a new access medium is p roposed in addition with general characteristics of WiFi & VLC.
