The paradigm of Quantum Communications stands tall among the technologies required to drive the future business use cases. Vasrious sectors including Telecommunications, Defense, Transportation, Infrastructure, Finance, Healthcare, Enterprise, Energy and Utilities, where secure transfer of data is going to be a challenge, Quantum Communication holds immense promise for securing our data transmissions, paving the way for a more secure and connected world in the era of quantum computing. New standards are being developed to strengthen the security using the principles of Quantum Communication. In the bigger picture comprising of Quantum computing, Quantum materials & devices, Quantum sensing & metrology, advancements in any of these pillars will have direct impact on the Quantum communication technologies.

With the successful first edition of International Quantum Communication Conclave, Telecommunication Engineering Centre (TEC) in association with C-DOT and TSDSI is organizing the second edition on February 15-16, 2024 at Vigyan Bhawan, New Delhi. This conclave aims to bring the experts from across the globe under one roof to share their experiences in research, implementation, standardization and commercialization of the Quantum Communication technologies. Numerous presentations, keynote speeches from renowned experts and panel discussions would provide ample opportunities for interaction. The conclave would focus on the following themes:

  • Global Initiatives for promoting Quantum Ecosystem
  • Advancements in Quantum Key Distribution
  • Post Quantum Cryptography
  • Enabling Technologies for Quantum Communication
  • Applications and Challenges in implementation of Quantum Technology in Communication Networks
  • Standardization, Testing and validation for Quantum Communication products
  • Other emerging Technologies

Today various stakeholders of the business including the academia, Research & Development organizations, start-ups, industry, Standardization bodies, Government departments are interested in the implementation of the use cases around these technologies. It is important that they collaborate and work together for the realization. This conclave provides an ideal platform for the interactions and networking. While the academicians and researchers focus on the research, start-ups and industries add the differentiating features to provide business solutions.

Telecommunication Engineering Centre (TEC), is a standards setting organisation for Telecom and related ICT products under the Department of Telecommunications, Ministry of Communications, Govt. of India. It is responsible for formulation of standards, specifications, test procedures, service specifications and technical regulations for Telecom/ICT sector. TEC is actively involved in the standardisation activities on Quantum Technology at domestic as well as international level participating and contributing to ITU, IEEE, etc. TEC has released standards on “Quantum Key Distribution System” and “Quantum-safe and Classical Cryptographic Systems”. TEC has also constituted a “National Working Group on Quantum Technology” (NWG-QT) with members from academia, industry/startups, R&D organizations, service providers, Govt. Organizations, etc. to have a focused and coordinated approach for development of standards on Quantum Technology.

Centre for Development of Telematics (C-DOT), is an autonomous Telecom R&D Centre of Department of Telecommunications, Govt of India. Established in 1984, C-DOT has contributed significantly in indigenous design, development and production of telecom technologies especially suited to Indian conditions. In its initial years, C-DOT triggered a telecom revolution in rural India that was responsible for all-round socio-economic development. Over the years, C-DOT has developed a large number of products of national and strategic importance in various Telecom areas such as Optical, Switching, Wireless, Security and Network Management. C-DOT is also contributing significantly in development of products in technologies such as M2M/IOT, 5G, AI and Quantum Security. In Quantum Security Vertical, C-DOT has developed Quantum Security products in the areas of Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) as well as Post-Quantum-Cryptography (PQC). C-DOT also has plans to increase its Quantum Communication Security products’ portfolio in the upcoming years.

Telecommunications Standards Development Society, India (TSDSI), is an autonomous, membership-based, standards development organization (SDO) for Telecom/ICT products and services in India. We develop standards for access, back-haul, and infrastructure systems, solutions, and services that best meet India-specific Telecom/ICT needs, based on research and innovation in India. We work closely with global standards bodies to reflect Indian requirements into international telecom/ICT standards. TSDSI is carrying out a Study on Post-Quantum-Cryptography for 5G Networks and has also initiated a Technology Roadmap Item Proposal (TRIP) Forum on Quantum Communications to identify opportunities for standardization.
