A quantum Internet is a network that carries Qubits instead of bits. There are already some research networks of this kind in Europe, Asia and elsewhere but there are already advanced plans in most developed nations to create more robust qubit networks that are expected to merge into a quantum Internet, paralleling the development of the original Internet. This session will discuss the technical and market aspects of the coming Quantum Internet and how the existing carriers and equipment firms can profit from its arrival.
