Generation of new standards to cater to the implementation of the quantum communication networks requires intensive collaborative efforts for several years. Standardization activities involve identification of gaps and inadequacies in the existing standards and realization of the new use cases, definition and measurement of benchmark parameters over a testbed to include them in the standard and generation of test cases to validate the implementations of the standard. It entails funding requirements for –
The testbed for generating test cases, benchmark parameters that get in to the standards, validation of implementations from different organizations for the adherence of standards and to provide assistance for certification ( the standards developed here are expected to get in to 3GPP, ISO, IEEE etc.).
