Orca Computing is leading a collaborative R&D consortium to develop multiplexing technologies for quantum networking for use in quantum computing and data centres.

Orca, along with Toshiba Europe, Bay Photonics, Imperial College London and University College London, are developing multiplexing and switching technologies for large-scale quantum data transfer to scale quantum computing to levels necessary for commercial application.

For the first time, this will provide a suite of technologies in tandem with quantum memories, frequency shifters and spatial switches.  This will allow the networking that takes place within and between quantum computers to exponentially scale to performance levels necessary for industrial scale quantum computing and networking.

 “As with classical networking, quantum networking is essential for the transmission and sharing of quantum information. Multiplexing and switching are foundational techniques in the telecommunications industry, enabling ultra-high data transmission rates,” said Bob Sorensen, Senior VP of Research at Hyperion Research.

“In order for enterprise use-cases to fully benefit from quantum computing, effective quantum networking will be needed to facilitate the scaling up of quantum systems beyond the limits of individual quantum processors. The development of advanced components for large-scale quantum data transfer is a critical next step for the industry and could drive significant market advancements.”

 “This advancement will mark a significant step forward in current multiplexing and switching technologies, fostering the growth of quantum networking and advancing telecommunications,” said Josh Nunn, Co-founder and Chief Science Officer at ORCA Computing. “The anticipated result of this project will be a world-first demonstration of three high-performance quantum communications technologies used together. Combined with ORCA approach to modular system design, users can benefit from both superior performance and upgradability.”
