The Evolution of Interconnects in the Brave New Quantum World!

August 17 @ 9:15 am - 10:15 am UTC-7
PanelistAndrew Lord, Senior Manager of Optical Research at BT

This talk will describe a brand new, operational, commercial quantum network in London, built by BT and Toshiba. We will look at the practical issues in building such a network, taking into account the need for co-existence of quantum and regular classical data. We will consider the implications of moving from a point-to-point system to a quantum network, with multiple nodes. Finally we will look ahead to the increased demands on components as we evolve towards a Quantum Internet.
