Hi Chonggang,

Thanks, these examples provide a better understanding of the proposed classification. Quantum teleportation which can be thought of as the dual task to superdense coding (  ) is therefore to be put in the same class.

A Quantum Ping in the idea of the "ping pong" application of the NetSquid tutorial can be classified as a control application.

Best regards

Hi Patrick,

It's a good question. I was thinking of the following cases. 

1. Quantum Superdense Encoding, which does not need classical channel and could be built with quantum circuit, can be leveraged to design such a full quantum application (called as Secret Sharing) for sharing a secret between two parties. This Secret Sharing application can be leveraged by data plane applications which requires secret exchange. Thus, this Secret Sharing application can be classified as control plane. 

2. Quantum Clock Synchronization (QCS) as a quantum application provides  clock sync function, which could be leveraged by classical or future new applications in the Quantum Internet. As such, QCS could be classified in control plane. 

3. In future, Quantum Machine Learning (QML) could be also leveraged to create a full quantum application for data analysis. Such a QML-based data analysis application could be leveraged to monitor and control data plane applications, for instance, by analyzing their behaviors. As such, this QML-based data analysis application can be classified as control plane. 

Any thoughts?

Hi Chonggang,

The applications belonging to control plane seem to be only classical application that use classical channel to control the quantum "data plane". Do you have an example of full quantum application (built with quantum circuit) classified in control plane ?

Best Regards

Hi All,

A new version of the quantum internet use case is just submitted with the following updates.

1. Melchior has helped to revise the whole Section 4.3 ("Control vs Data Plane Classification").
2. A new paragraph was added to Section 6 ("General Requirements") for discussing challenges in predicting the evolution of quantum technologies.
3. Some typos throughout the document have been fixed.

Please review this new version and let us know if you have more feedback.

A new version of I-D, draft-wang-qirg-quantum-internet-use-cases-06.txt
has been successfully submitted by Akbar Rahman and posted to the IETF repository.

Title:Applications and Use Cases for the Quantum Internet Document date:2020-05-05 Group:Individual Submission

   The Quantum Internet has the potential to improve Internet
   application functionality by incorporating quantum information
   technology into the infrastructure of the overall Internet.  In this
   document, we provide an overview of some applications expected to be
   used on the Quantum Internet, and then categorize them using various
   classification schemes.  Some general requirements for the Quantum
   Internet are also discussed.  The intent of this document is to
   provide a common understanding and framework of applications and use
   cases for the Quantum Internet.

Please note that it may take a couple of minutes from the time of submission until the htmlized version and diff are available at
