Quantum Xchange QKD Breakthrough Protects Data Sent on Standard Telecom Networks
(Fortune.com) Quantum Xchange says it has made a breakthrough will make it easier for governments and businesses to use its quantum (QKD) technology. Previously, the technology could only be used in a fiber optic cable between two endpoints over a short distance—at most 60 miles.
Quantum Xchange says the new method it has developed can protect data being transmitted to multiple endpoints, over any distance and across standard telecom networks. “Keys can now be transmitted over unlimited distance,” John Prisco, Quantum Xchange’s CEO, says in an exclusive interview with Fortune.
