Albert Einstein once dismissed quantum entanglement as “spooky action at a distance”. In other words, possible, but highly improbable. Now, scientists have proved that quantum entanglement is possible in the real world. In June 2020, researchers at the National University of Singapore demonstrated quantum entanglement on a small Earth-orbiting mini-satellite (CubeSat), aptly named SpooQy-1.
A few years ago, China’s Micius satellite showed that satellite-based quantum communication is viable. But SpooQy-1, the world’s smallest quantum satellite, could indicate more exciting beginnings, such as a network of smaller and cheaper quantum satellites that might eventually help launch a fast, secure ‘Quantum Internet’.
The Quantum Internet is envisioned to be free from many of the limitations of the ‘traditional’ Internet. This means it could achieve unprecedented levels of privacy, security and computational ability. Quantropi’s unique Quantum Entropy Expansion and Propagation (QEEP™) technology offers secure, high-speed and reliable data transmission – even in case of a sophisticated quantum attack. Ultra-fast, energy-efficient and 100% compatible with existing network and technology investments – QEEP™ is all this and more. Contact us for more information.
Would Einstein be pleased or spooked? The jury’s out.
But is QKD more reliable or QEEP™? The jury is in, and their choice is clear!
