Influential Quantum Networks: Profiles and Strategies

Report: IQT-IQN-1019
Published October 16, 2019

This report is a strategic guide to quantum networks around the world. Organized on a geographical basis, the report provides profiles of what each country and region is doing to fund and build quantum networks of all kinds. The report covers QKD, mobile/transactional networks, quantum computer networking and quantum clouds, among other quantum network applications.

We look at both production networks that send qubits over long-haul or metropolitan fiber or satellites and experimental networks. The report is based on personal and telephone interviews and attendance at major conferences including a recent ITU quantum network conference at which one of the authors of this report was a featured speaker. We have also utilized insights gained from speakers at Inside Quantum Technology’s own quantum conferences in the US and Europe. Our interviewees include executives at commercial firms, telephone companies and government agencies, as well as academics and government players.

This has been complemented with material from published sources including Inside Quantum Technology’s own industry analysis. We believe that this report provides actionable competitive intelligence and analysis on the state of the quantum networking market and where it is headed in the future.  This report will prove invaluable to business development and marketing executives, as well as product managers in the quantum technology sector. It will also be an essential resource for quantum computing market investors.
