Paper Abstract

We present the pipe-lined design of a quantum communications network that neither requires the establishment of entanglement between remote locations nor the use of quantum memories. It can be shown that the rate at which quantum data can be transmitted through the network is only limited by the time required to perform efficient local gate operations. This packet switched scheme therefore has the potential to provide higher communications rates than previously thought possible.
