Communication and networking

Information encoded in quantum states can be moved over macroscopic distances coherently for secure communications and networking of quantum computers or sensors.

Quantum networks rely on entanglement distribution and teleportation to transmit quantum information between any two locations, enabling information sharing across the network. Entanglement is the phenomenon in which the quantum states of two or more qubits are correlated, no matter their distance. Entanglement is integral to quantum teleportation.
