For a long time, the cure for diabetes type 1 and type 2 has relied on agonizing insulin shots for patients or insulin infusion via mechanical pumps. Regarding this, experts have been creating artificial pancreatic beta cells with the he…
For the past 15 years, major service providers and research institutions worldwide have run quantum network trials. We are now entering a period in which permanent quantum networks are being built. These are designed initially to support quantum encryption services, but will soon also provide the infrastructure for quantum computing.
CIR believes that as quantum networks are deployed, they will eventually create opportunities at the service level, but more immediately at the components and modules level. This is because quantum networks will require a slew of new optical networking technologies to make them function effectively. In this report, CIR identifies the leading opportunities that will emerge from the building of quantum networks throughout the world. This report includes:
- Profiles of all the leading quantum networks and related R&D around the globe. We discuss which technologies and components these networks are using and developing and how quantum networks will impact the telecommunications and data communications more generally. For each of these networks, current and planned applications are discussed and we also analyze where the potential for commercialization will be found.
- Ten-year forecasts of the deployment of quantum network nodes around the globe with breakouts by technologies used, applications served and the kinds of components being used. These forecasts are developed in the context of a roadmap for future needs for encryption, high-performance computing (HPC), and big data infrastructure support.
- A thorough analysis of the commercialization potential for the technologies associated with quantum networking. This analysis will discuss how leading commercial organizations active in building today’s quantum networks expect to build businesses around their experience.
This report will be essential reading for marketing, business development and product managers throughout the data communications and telecommunications industry, especially those at firms in the fiber optic and small satellite sectors. The report will also be valuable for those planning business development and investment in the quantum computing and quantum encryption businesses.
