NYU Takes Quantum Step in Establishing Cutting-Edge Tech Hub in Lower Manhattan
NYU and Qunnect Transmit Quantum Information Over 10 Miles in NYC
New York University's Center for Quantum Information Physics (CQIP) in collaboration with Qunnect successfully established a 10-mile quantum networking link between the Brooklyn Navy Yard and NYU's Manhattan campus using Qunnect’s quantum-secure networking technology. During this trial, Qunnect and NYU’s Center for Quantum Information Physics (CQIP) sent “qubits” over fiber optic cable at 15,000 pairs/second with a remarkable 99% uptime.
In the press release, NYU’s vice provost for research and chief research officer, Stacie Grossman Bloom, highlighted:
This foundational achievement sets the stage for expanding an underground, high-capacity fiber optic network. This network will seamlessly link NYU to other NYC institutions, from financial hubs to tech giants, all through cutting-edge quantum communication.
