This paper focuses on the combined technique of device-to-device (D2D) and coordinated multipoint joint transmission (CoMP-JT) to bridge the indoor industrial wireless gap with LiFi-based networks. It also considers the mobility challange of industrial Internet-of-Things (IIoT) within a realistic scenario. Using the semiangle at half illuminance of the LiFi access point and D2D transmitting IIoT, we derive a coverage model for the communication range. Using stochastic geometry, the analytical expressions for CoMP-JT probability and coverage performance are derived in terms of different parameters, such as transmitter densities and bias factor. The analytical approximations match quite well with the Monte Carlo method-based simulation results.
