Russia’s Quantum Communication Network To Be Fully Operational In 10-15 Years
(URDU.Point) Quantum communication lines will enter into commercial operation in Russia in 10-15 years, with their prototypes already being used, Special Representative of the President on Digital and Technological Development Dmitry Peskov said recently
“The timeline, I think, is 10-15 years. But you can call via quantum lines from office to office right now,” Peskov said.
The state-run Russian Railways company has recently launched the country’s first communication line over the main quantum channel between Moscow and St. Petersburg, the official said, noting that the 700-kilometer (435-mile) segment of the quantum network is currently the largest in Europe.
Additionally, Russia’s state nuclear agency Rosatom, energy giant Gazprom and Sberbank are also involved in developing quantum communication networks, Peskov said.
