What is quantum computing-based telecom network?
A quantum computing-based telecom network uses the principles of quantum physics to transmit information, providing a more secure method than traditional networks. Quantum communication relies on quantum mechanics properties, making it hard to intercept or hack the communication. This technology has the potential to revolutionize the telecom industry by enabling faster, more efficient, and secure communication.
