Test­bed Map for Quan­tum Com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on in Ger­ma­ny

SQuaD is the cen­tral point of cont­act for the exper­ti­se and infra­struc­tu­re of quan­tum com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on in Ger­ma­ny. For this pur­po­se, actors from rese­arch and indus­try are brought tog­e­ther and the exis­ting rese­arch set-ups of the part­ners are expan­ded to include public use of test­beds for quan­tum com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on tech­no­lo­gy. 

The test­bed map shows the loca­ti­ons in Ger­ma­ny whe­re test­beds in the field of quan­tum com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on exist or are plan­ned. If your exis­ting or requi­red test­bed is not yet included in the map, plea­se cont­act us.

Par­al­lel to the alre­a­dy exis­ting test­bed infra­struc­tu­re, seve­ral initia­ti­ves and pro­jects are ongo­ing to extend the test­bed infra­struc­tu­re in Ger­ma­ny. The initia­ti­ve for the estab­lish­ment of a fiber optic back­bone for quan­tum com­mu­ni­ca­ti­on and time and fre­quen­cy dis­tri­bu­ti­on in Ger­ma­ny is intro­du­ced here.
