Quantum technologies have the potential to improve in an unprecedented way the security and efficiency of communications in network infrastructures. We discuss the current landscape in quantum communication and cryptography, and focus in particular on recent photonic implementations, using encoding in discrete or continuous properties of light, of central quantum network protocols, enabling secret key distribution, verification of multiparty entanglement and transactions of quantum money, with security guarantees impossible to achieve with only classical resources. We also describe current challenges in this field and our efforts towards the miniaturization of the developed photonic systems, their integration into telecommunication network infrastructures, including with satellite links, as well as the practical demonstration of novel protocols featuring a quantum advantage for a wide range of tasks. These advances enrich the resources and applications of the emerging quantum networks that will play a central role in the context of future global-scale quantum-safe communications.
Smart devices inherit their users’ dynamics and decision-making. With network intelligence being pushed at the edge, much closer to users, networking resource management is highly exposed and impacted by user behaviors.
We focus on users’ mobility behavior, which may render the location of the edge computation allocated for such users non-optimal in the long run. In particular, resources are wasted if provisioned to networking areas where the users will no more be closer. In contrast, more considerable geographical distances to remote areas might induce significant delays that many latency-sensitive applications will not tolerate. Unfortunately, current literature edge allocation approaches do not encompass mobile users’ heterogeneous and uncertain behavior (i.e., where and when network resources will be needed or demanded) and do not consider the user’s susceptibility to visit new and unexplored places. The history of movements of an individual who likes exploring recent locations provides a wrong estimation of her next move, harming anticipation of resource allocation at the edge.
It has become thus inevitable for networking mobile services to accommodate the mobility of smart devices smartly, no matter how dynamic users are or how uncertain their movements are meant to be. Mobility accommodation refers to the anticipation of movements of devices, allowing the services and the communication systems proactively adapt to dynamic demands.
In this context, I believe network resources must be just-in-time smartly allocated precisely where and when they must be. For this, the underlying mechanism and features explaining users’ mobility behaviors must be explicitly understood. This talk aims to get a sense of the daily mobility patterns of individuals by interpreting and explaining related mobility tendencies and discussing the involved beauty and vulnerabilities of such tendencies. I claim such understanding has to be considered from the conception of networking solutions.
