First quantum secured governmental connection in the Netherlands

Eindhoven University of Technology (TU/e) is proud to announce that on the 29th of June the first local governmental connection with secure quantum communications is being demonstrated in the Netherlands. In this demonstration a connection is made between mayor Oosterveer of Waalre in his office in Het Huis van Waalre to the network operator WeConnect’s Waalre office. This demonstration will show the usability and market readiness of secure quantum communications. The Brainport region, TU/e, WeConnect and Waalre are at the top of the developments on secure quantum communications, working together to ensure that telecommunication remains stable, fast and secure over the next decades.

This connection between the municipality of Waalre and WeConnect Waalre is part of the quantum technology agnostic Eindhoven quantum (secure) communications testbed currently under development to demonstrate quantum communications use-cases and drive the adoption of quantum secure communications. These efforts are funded by the QuantumDelta NL (QDNL) growth funds on Quantum Communications (KAT-2) and by the QCINed project through the European Quantum Communications Infrastructure (EuroQCI) programme.
