Paper Abstract

We present the characteristic performance of quantum key distribution over various fiber optic network topologies. The networks include the RING, BUS, and STAR. Quantum bit-error rate is determined for each network as function of number of users, and transmission distance. The trade off between number of users and transmission distance is presented. The model is compared with experiment results for bus network architecture for quantum key distribution.
