HEQA and PacketLight Announce Successful Integration of Quantum Key Distribution

An important milestone in advancing quantum communication technology and optical networking

Modi'in and Tel Aviv November 11, 2023 - HEQA (formerly QuantLR), a leading provider of quantum communication and quantum key distribution (QKD) solutions, and PacketLight Networks, a leading provider of DWDM and OTN equipment, have successfully accomplished a quantum-safe encrypted network by integrating the QKD services provided by HEQA with the OTN encrypted transport provided by PacketLight.

HEQA and PacketLight combined their respective technologies and expertise to enhance the efficiency, security, and scalability of quantum-safe communication networks. HEQA’s QKD harnesses the principles of quantum physics to secure the transmission of sensitive data, resistant to eavesdropping and hacking attempts. PacketLight’s devices deliver high capacity, reliable, and flexible transmission of data across DWDM networks, making them an ideal partner for this integration.

Teams at HEQA and PacketLight worked closely to seamlessly integrate their technologies. They validated the compatibility of quantum communication systems with optical networking infrastructure through rigorous testing to ensure optimal performance, stability, and reliability of the integrated solution.

This integration provides unparalleled ease of use. Thanks to a strong emphasis on simplicity and scalability, customers can effortlessly establish a QKD network over an existing PacketLight-supported network in under 30 minutes.

"We are extremely pleased with the outcome of this collaboration between HEQA and PacketLight," said Nir Bar-Lev, CEO of HEQA. "This successful integration project paves the way for new opportunities in quantum communication. The joint solution enables customers to enjoy the highest level of secure communication with the easiest integration, and optimal cost effectiveness for a variety of use cases and network topologies. Especially in metro, last mile and other short distance setups."

"The integration of HEQA's technology with PacketLight’s DWDM/OTN devices opens up new avenues for secure data transmission,” added Koby Reshef, CEO of PacketLight. “We are proud to have been a part of this project and are excited about the possibilities it brings to the market."

This successful integration and testing project between HEQA and PacketLight represents a significant step forward in advancing the field of quantum communication. The collaboration demonstrates the viability of combining quantum solutions with optical networking infrastructure, unlocking new possibilities for secure and efficient data transmission.
