Openness of optical platform enables quantum key distribution for super-
encrypted data transport

Cambridge, UK. June 13, 2018. ADVA (FSE: ADV) announced today that its FSP 3000
is playing a key enabling role in the UK's first quantum network. Built by the
University of Cambridge and officially launched this week, the network is based
on a metro transport system in the city of Cambridge. The solution super-
encrypts data using quantum key distribution (QKD) for complete and long-term
cryptographic data security. The openness of the ADVA FSP 3000 platform, which
can accept keys from third-party systems utilizing standard protocols, is a
vital component of the ultra-secure ROADM-based network. For several years, ADVA
has worked closely with Toshiba and the Quantum Communications Hub to engineer
the groundbreaking data protection system. Quantum cryptography is expected to
be an essential tool for securing mission-critical infrastructure as it protects
against all forms of cyberattack, including future advances in quantum
computing.

"As part of the UK National Quantum Technologies Programme in the Quantum
Communications Hub, we're bringing together a wide range of universities, public
sector bodies and private companies in a unique collaboration. Our shared goal
is realizing the potential of QKD technologies to deliver secure communications.
Now, alongside key partners such as ADVA, we've reached the stage where QKD-
based security is ready for live traffic," said Tim Spiller, York University and
director of the Quantum Communications Hub.

The ADVA FSP 3000's open interface was developed to comply with early drafts of
the new ETSI quantum-safe cryptography standard currently being developed by an
ISG headed by Toshiba. This enables the platform to interoperate with external
systems and is crucial to the viability of the new QKD solution as it allows the
ADVA FSP 3000 to securely and robustly accept keys. What's more, ADVA's WDM
platform is able to utilize the same fiber for sending high-speed encrypted data
as well as for distributing (or generating) quantum keys. QKD is widely
predicted to be fundamental to the future of transport network security,
especially for finance and government network applications. Distributing
encryption keys by transmitting quantum states guarantees the secrecy of data as
any attempt to intercept traffic disturbs photons, introducing coding errors and
alerting network operators. This makes QKD the ultimate defense against man-in-
the-middle attacks.

"This launch is a genuine milestone for data protection. By working with Toshiba
and the Quantum Communications Hub to advance QKD, we're ushering in a new age
of robust security. This technology will provide peace of mind to businesses
most at risk from cyberattacks both now and in the future. They and their
customers can have confidence that their data will be shielded from all threats
including data harvesting for future quantum hacking," commented Jörg-Peter
Elbers, SVP, advanced technology, ADVA. "In recent years, our encryption
technology has earned a formidable reputation for protecting service provider
and enterprise networks while ensuring highest capacity, lowest latency and
maximum scalability. Our ConnectGuard(TM) suite offers the strongest protection
possible at Layers 1, 2, 3 and 4. Using our FSP 3000 to enable QKD protection
ensures our technology will remain at the forefront of secure data transport,
even in the post-quantum era."

"Developing quantum cryptography in fiber optic networks has long been a focus
for our team. Over the years, we've taken it from PoCs in the lab to real-world
demonstrations and we were the first company to achieve a transfer rate of more
than 1Mbit/s for quantum communication. Now, through close collaboration with
ADVA and the Quantum Communications Hub, we've created a fully operational
transport network secured by QKD and ready to carry live data," said Andrew
Shields, assistant managing director, Toshiba Research Europe Limited, Cambridge
Research Lab. "At a time of increasingly frequent and severe cyberattacks, this
technology will prove vital to enterprises looking to fortify their data
security, particularly those in the financial sector. Not only does it offer a
new level of protection against intrusion on fiber optic networks, but it also
safeguards against the upcoming threat of hacking in a post-quantum world."

"The development of the UK Quantum Network has already led to a much greater
understanding of the potential of this technology in secure applications in a
range of fields, in addition to bringing new insights into the operation of the
systems in practice," commented Ian White, van Eck Professor of Engineering,
University of Cambridge. "I have no doubt that the network will bring much
benefit in the future to researchers, developers and users."
