India's first quantum computing based telecom network link activated

The first quantum computing-based telecom network link has been activated in India and is located between Sanchar Bhawan and National Informatics Center (NIC) office at CGO Complex in New Delhi.

An Overview of the News

  • Telecom Network Link provides quantum secure communications, making it highly resistant to hacking attempts and cyber threats.

  • Telecom Minister Ashwini Vaishnav inaugurated a small exhibition of quantum computing firms, inviting them to run pilot projects for communication networks and the Indian Railways.

  • Using quantum computing, the telecommunications sector will benefit from faster and more secure communications, which can lead to improved network reliability and better user experiences.

About Quantum Computing

  • It uses qubits instead of classical bits to perform calculations, enabling it to perform calculations much faster than classical computers.

  • Quantum computers use quantum-mechanical phenomena such as superposition and complexity to perform calculations.

  • Potential applications of quantum computing include such revolutionary fields as cryptography, chemistry and materials science.

  • Challenges facing quantum computing include the issue of qubit decoherence and the high cost of building and maintaining quantum computers.
