In-Network Quantum Computing for Future 6G Networks

Research output: Contribution to journalResearch articleContributedpeer-review


In light of the imperative for expeditious data processing and enhanced global connectivity, the domain of communication technology is experiencing a rapid progression from the Fifth Generation (5G) to the forthcoming Sixth Generation (6G) within the research community. Furthermore, 6G promises to significantly augment the synergy between the human, digital, and physical realms, thereby necessitating the formulation of novel Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) as well as Key Values Indicators (KVIs), and the assimilation of commensurate technologies. Among these technologies, quantum computing is evolving rapidly due to its inherent advantages from quantum mechanics. Nevertheless, scant attention is directed toward a comprehensive exploration of the consequences attendant to its present-day application. The principal objective of this article resides in its endeavor to underscore, from a compensatory perspective, the convergence of 6G and quantum computing while concurrently considering the Sustainable Development Goals and its KVIs.
