28 September 2017

China launched its cutting-edge secure quantum communication server on Wednesday in Beijing. The server combines quantum key management system with cloud computing and storage technology to ensure the security not only of communication. It is also an application service, data transmission and operation and maintenance management. Quantum communication is known for its security, as quanta cannot be separated and duplicated.

China has made a series of breakthrough in the field of quantum communication. In 2016, China sent world's first quantum communication satellite Micius up into the space. In 2017, China completed world's first secure quantum communication line.
