The main objective of this project is to develop new protocols for controlling the networks of quantum processing units connected by quantum channels. This type of networks requires new methods allowing to fully utilize the capabilities offered by quantum information processing. Quantum internetworking protocols should be able to exploit the quantum effects, including quantum teleportation, dense coding and quantum key distribution. These effects operate on classical and quantum data and thus quantum internetworking protocols have to provide the means for operating on both types of data.
Currently quantum effects of dense coding and teleportation may lead to the conclusion that quantum information transmission allows for more efficient and safer data transmission in comparison to classical communication. The creation and testing of the model planned in the project will give an opportunity to verify this conviction.
