Simulator for Distributed Quantum Computation

Distributed computing is a model in which components of a software system are shared among multiple computers to improve efficiency and performance. The growing interest in cloud computing scenarios that incorporate both distributed computing capabilities and heterogeneous hardware presents a significant opportunity for network operators. The aim of this Research is to develop a purpose-built discrete-event simulator for distributed quantum computing and identify further challenges and open problems arising from the design of a Distributed Quantum Computing ecosystem. In addition, the intern participating in this project will develop applicable protocols for blind computing. which, in itself, is a research challenge since Quantum Internet is being developed in parallel. This research is of central importance for Ericsson as it allows the integration of quantum computing into Ericsson distributed processing environment in order to fulfill the performance requirements of next generation of telecom networks.
