Partnership with Vodafone
As part of this collaboration, Vodafone will explore quantum computing for various use cases for carriers. The company also advances its employees’ skills in quantum technology through employee-led iterative prototyping.
Through this effort, Vodafone will explore how to apply IBM Quantum Safe encryption technology across its diverse network infrastructure and systems. Future quantum computers will pose threats to today’s standard security such as public key cryptography. Quantum-secure cryptographic protocols not only exist today, they provide capabilities that help protect traditional data and systems from the potential decryption capabilities of these future quantum computers, but
“As a major player in the telecommunications industry, Vodafone is setting an example for the industry by investigating quantum computing applications for its business operations and applying quantum-safe cryptographic protocols to secure long-term data and systems. is showing.”
Vodafone joins more than 200 members of the IBM Quantum Network, a global community of Fortune 500 companies, start-ups, academia and research institutions, to advance quantum computing and explore its practical applications. Their involvement is designed to set the course for them to harness this future Quantum Advantage capability. That is, when business or scientific computational tasks can be performed more efficiently, cost-effectively, or accurately with quantum computers than with classical computation alone. .
