The UK’s first industrial quantum-secure network, created by the DETI partnership, BT and Toshiba Europe Ltd, has successfully shared live data for remote manufacturing using Quantum Key Distribution (QKD), over a 2 month trial period.

This is the first time the capability has been demonstrated using ‘off the shelf’ components and is the first phase of a programme exploring the practical application of this technology to accelerate the shift to smart factories.

Watch the video which demonstrates live production data and quality-critical measurements for remote manufacturing being shared across the Quantum-secure network for digital engineering.
