GÉANT Infoshare: Quantum Key Distribution, Physical implementation and testbed

(Timezone - Europe/Brussels)

Zoom Room:



This infoshare will presented different Quantum Key Distribution physical implementations:

  • The physical QKD implementation between Ostrava - Cieszyn
  • The GEANT QKD PoC between 2 GEANT PoPs in collaboration  with Toshiba
  • The CESNET testbed
  • The PSNC testbed 

The objective is to show practical implementations and to answer NREN questions regarding potential deployment.

The infoshare will also give the last update about the European Quantum Communication Infrastructure call (QCI).
