QuTech, Quantum Delta NL and KPN present: A live demonstration of the next step in quantum communication, which will revolutionize online banking, secure legal and secure governmental communication. You are cordially invited to join our live online launch event.
What to expect
We are inviting you to witness the first demonstration of our next-generation quantum communication system, simultaneously using the same fiber network as conventional internet hardware. The demo will consist of our quantum systems providing service to a variety of internet applications.
Confirmed speakers include:
Dr. Joshua Slater, team lead Quantum Communication QuTech/Delft University of Technology
Jesse Robbers, Director Quantum Delta NL
Victoria Lipinska, PhD, Quantum Advisor KPN

Quantum internet offers unparalleled capabilities in secure communication. Our system runs the QKD protocol; a protocol that ensures eavesdropping and hacking is not possible.
The full name of the system: MDI-QKD. The MDI (measurement device independent) means our system can connect many different users via the same central hub, without learning what the users send to each other. New users can also be added to the network just by connecting to that untrusted central hub. The quantum key distribution (QKD)-part is the cryptographic method that ensures eavesdropping and hacking is not possible.
OurThe system is also deployed with conventional internet traffic on the same fiber network. Also the system can be easily upgraded towards more advanced quantum internet functionality.
This demonstration will show a crucial step towards the quantum internet of the future. Hear from experts what this achievement of QuTech in deployed quantum internet really means and how we are building quantum internet in the Netherlands.
