A ‘quantum leap’ in encryption technology

Toshiba Research Europe, BT, ADVA Optical Networking and the National Physical Laboratory (NPL), the UK’s National Measurement Institute, today announced the first successful trial of Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) technology over a live ‘lit’ fibre network. The trial paves the way for more advanced research into QKD, the next frontier of data encryption technology, which will deliver even greater levels of network security.
