Like the classical Internet, the quantum Internet is a globe-spanning network of networks. The difference between these two Internet is the second one uses a quantum communication system. That means transporting all data in a quantum form. The mechanism used is quantum teleportation which relies on an intrinsic property of the theory, entanglement.

This webinar intends to bring the first answers to these questions and provide the state of the art in the field.

We will talk about the first experiments in Europe:

  • In Amsterdam, led by the research group Qutech and the dutch telecommunications operator KPN.
  • In Nice with the help of the CNRS Inphyni team and the french telecommunication operator Orange.
  • In Swiss with the help of the Swiss Quantum Hub.
