Jörg-Peter Elbers talks data security for the quantum age

Laser World of Photonics presentation to outline practical steps towards quantum-safe commercial networks

  • Speakers: Jörg-Peter Elbers, SVP, advanced technology, ADVA 
  • Topics: Quantum-safe data center interconnect – a practitioner’s guide
  • When: Wednesday, June 26, 3:40 p.m.
  • Where: Laser World of Photonics, Messe München, Messegelände, Munich

The advent of quantum computers puts the security of data communication over optical fiber links at risk. In this talk, Jörg Peter Elbers will discuss the threats and explain how optical networks can be made resistant against quantum computer attacks. He will present typical network configurations and practical field deployments, then describe a gradual approach for the introduction of quantum-safe technologies into commercial networks.
