BUT launched the first interfaculty quantum link in the Czech Republic connecting FIT and FEEC


In 2021, the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Communication of the Brno University of Technology opened a new Quantum Security Laboratory, where you can find equipment used to ensure communication resistant to attacks by quantum computers (find more details here). Now the scientists have transferred the quantum link from the laboratory environment to a real operational network connecting the Faculty of Electrical Engineering and Communication (FEEC) and the Faculty of Information Technology (FIT), i.e. two campuses located in different parts of Brno. This connection represents a further step towards building a quantum network and strengthening the cybersecurity research.

In addition to the aforementioned faculties, the university's rectorate as well as the Computing and Information Services Centre (CISC), which prepared a suitable route on the existing optical infrastructure, participated in the construction of the link. The new encrypted connection corresponds to a real installation and will primarily serve research and education.
