Joint work is expected to focus on standards and technical requirements for quantum security technologies
The Quantum Engineering Programme (QEP) kicked off its collaboration with T-Systems, a leading provider of digital services , at an event at T-Systems’ offices on 20 August 2021. QEP Director Alexander Ling met with the Managing Director of T-Systems Singapore, Arkadiusz Czopor, along with members of their teams.
In April, T-Systems Singapore signed a Memorandum of Understanding with the National University of Singapore, acting through QEP, to support cooperation on quantum security technologies. The joint work is expected to have a focus on standards and technical requirements for quantum security technologies and would include T-System’s participation in a local network testbed. QEP and T-Systems also plan to co-organise events.
With around 28,000 employees worldwide and annual revenues of EUR 4.2 billion (2020), T-Systems is a Deutsche Telekom subsidiary headquartered in Germany. It has a presence in Europe as well as in selected core markets and strategic production locations. T-Systems can provide a global production and supply chain to companies operating worldwide. The company’s offers include fixed-network and mobile communications, data centres, a comprehensive cloud ecosystem, and top levels of security.
QEP has quantum communication and security as one of its four research pillars. Activities in this pillar will include research towards a future quantum internet and development of a quantum network in Singapore for end-users and stakeholders to explore the technology.
