(TweakTown) A team of researchers have made a break-through discovery in quantum internet networking, announcing they have developed the first quantum internet protocol.
The research team QuTech developed a new “quantum network stack” that is the “world’s first link-layer protocol”. Since a quantum network uses quantum bits, or qubits to transfer information, a new network protocol had to be developed due to quantum bits not retaining data reliably. This newly developed protocol overcomes those hurdles that quantum level software development was encountering.
Professor Stephanie Wehner from the research team QuTech describes this by saying “All of us use classical link layer protocols in everyday life. One example is Wi-Fi, which allows an unreliable radio signal-suffering from interruptions and interference-to be used to transmit data reliably between compatible devices.”
