Developing Quantum Networking for A Safer, More Secure, Better Connected World

In a world where digital threats loom large, ensuring the security of information has become more important than ever. With the rise of quantum networks, a world where nobody can break into your bank account or steal your personal information is becoming a reality. 

Quantum networks use quantum communication to transmit information between devices, making it nearly impossible for hackers to intercept messages. These networks will be essential for providing digital security for banks, medical facilities, and other critical infrastructures. 

Eventually, quantum networking will link quantum computers and processors with quantum network repeaters and memory, which could lead to even more robust quantum computing power, improved distributed computing and more efficient communication.

As a globally recognized leader in classical network technology and a pioneer in emerging work into quantum networking, the Netherlands is at the forefront of building these highly secure networks. 

With its first-of-its-kind physical infrastructure that connects multiple quantum processors, QDNL’s Quantum Network – QN – serves as a national testbed for new applications, such as secure online quantum computing. The QN will consist of the latest quantum equipment for users to learn, engage, and validate the industrial applicability of quantum technology. Fiber and satellite links will connect QN to other EU networks within the context of EuroQCI and the Quantum Flagship.

QDNL also provides support for commercial quantum networking technology rollouts.

Towards a unified control plane for quantum networks

In the Netherlands, several activities are taking place in the field of quantum network infrastructures. These focus on the hardware and software necessary for new services based on Quantum Information Networks (QIN) and Quantum Key Distribution (QKD). Quantum Delta NL (QDNL) aims to unify these developments into a national quantum network.
