QuantLR and PacketLight Networks demonstrate successful integration, while using the Quantum Secured keys to encrypt the data transport
Jerusalem, March 16, 2020 - QuantLR, a Quantum cryptography company, announced today that its Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) technology was successfully tested with PacketLight Networks optical layer transport technology, demonstrating that a secure data communication will be ready for mass deployment soon. The secure low-cost quantum cryptography solution, which successfully performs in challenging network scenarios, will cost 90% less than the competing products.
The integration of QuantLR’s QKD system with PacketLight’s Layer-1 transponder demonstrates the creation of quantum secured keys in a rate of 10k secured bits per second for 40km. The keys were used to encrypt and decrypt data in a rate of 100 Giga bits per second.
The next phase is to test the technology throughout several commercial deployments. QuantLR is planning a series of field trials to test the deployment of quantum key distribution over different fiber lines, owned and operated by different communication vendors and operators.
QuantLR Co-Founder and CEO Shlomi Cohen said, “We are pleased to announce that our integration project with PacketLight Networks went extremely well. Now, we have a system that can be tested comprehensively with major telecom companies.”
“Data security has become the most important aspect in data center connectivity over fiber and DWDM networks“ says Koby Reshef, PacketLight Networks CEO, “The integration with QuantLR will allow us to provide an innovative encryption solution leveraging quantum technologies to maintain a high level of data encryption at an affordable cost.”
QuantLR is a Jerusalem based company which aims to provide low-cost Quantum Encryption solutions. Quantum Encryption is the only proven technology to secure data in transit and detect eavesdropping. The expertise of the company comes from world renown quantum physicists from the Hebrew University of Jerusalem. www.quantlr.com
