EPIC Online Technology Meeting on Quantum Communication & Quantum Key Distribution
Online Event

Quantum communication and QKD for a highly secure data transfer is shifting from being laboratory-based scientific research to an indispensable tool in various fields going from networking to banking and ADAS. This meeting will gather the key players in the industrialisation of quantum communication technologies using i.e. single-photon laser sources, detectors, fibres, and ultraprecise time signals, with innovative and visionary end-users and create business opportunities in this fast-growing industry.

Spirit of the meetings

During these online technology meetings, we are looking for the challenges the industry is facing and bringing together the entire supply chain to address these challenges. Bringing together end-users with component suppliers and system integrators that will answer the EPIC question “What can you do for them and what can they do for you” creates the perfect foundation to establish new business relationships and find ways for new collaborations and partnerships.







Catherine White is a research specialist within the Optical Networking and Quantum Technology group at British Telecom Applied Research. She has worked on trialing and integration of QKD systems since 2015.

Catherine White at British Telecom (BT)

Coordinates the development of the infrastructure and the technical support to blockchain projects. Published several articles and papers on blockchain and quantum technology and their potential for social impact.

Lead Researcher at IT Tech Lab of the Inter-American Development Bank

Holds a Ph.D. in theoretical physics and is with the engineering department of DT since 2011. His main topics of interest are network concepts and innovations and he is now working on introducing a quantum secure platform.

Felix Wissel
Fixed Mobile Engineering at Deutsche Telekom

He is working on different aspects of quantum security and quantum key distribution for optical networks. He is involved in several funded research projects in this area, including OpenQKD, setting up a range of QKD testbeds in Europe.

Director of Advanced Technology at ADVA

Applies quantum encryption since building his first system over 15 years ago. KETS has figured out how to miniaturize quantum-safe hardware in a size, form-factor, and price-point that makes it commercially interesting.

CEO & Co-Founder at KETS Quantum Security

He is the coinventor of 5+ patent families and has published several papers in the field of quantum technologies. Abellan has received multiple awards, as the MIT Innovators Under 35 Europe.

Carlos Abellan
Co-founder & CEO at Quside Technologies

After experiments on quantum teleportation and long-distance QKD, his group at LMU is now busy with multi-qubit entanglement, simple, robust QKD modules, and entanglement distribution between remote atomic quantum memories.
