Event description

Description

We live in a world that is digitally connected. In order to accommodate the demands of this digital world, we need increasingly faster networks that are reliable and secure. Members of Quantum Engineering Technology Labs and the High Performance Network Group of Smart Internet Lab at the University of Bristol will come together as part of the Quantum Communications Hub to demonstrate their expertise and innovation.

On 3 September 2019, we will showcase the University of Bristol's 5GUK Test Network and its ability to host a quantum key distribution (QKD) secured network. Using open-source software developed by researchers in the group, we will show dynamic QKD key exchange over end-to-end core, metro and access networks.

The event will start mid-morning with a series of presentations on the network, its capabilities and overviews of QKD technology development in Bristol. There will be opportunities to see the network in action, as well as demonstrations of applications, ranging from securing national infrastructure to securing end-user transactions. Those wishing to stay on at the end of the event will have the opportunity to sign up for lab tours.

FAQs

What are my transport/parking options for getting to and from the event?
Train

Visitors should travel to Bristol Temple Meads as it is much closer to the University than Bristol Parkway. The nearest local train station to the University is Clifton Down. Services run about once an hour.

The 9 and 72 bus services from Bristol Temple Meads train station run every 15 minutes at peak times and stop at Tyndall Avenue on the University campus. The journey takes about 20-30 minutes.

From Bristol Airport

Bristol Airport is eight miles (13 km) south of the city and has scheduled flights to many UK and European cities. The Airport Flyer Express bus (service A1) runs approximately every ten minutes at peak times between the airport and Bristol Bus and Coach Station near the University campus. Checker Cars offer taxis from Bristol Airport. The journey should take around 30 minutes

Parking

There are multi-storey car parks about ten minutes' walk from the main campus as shown on our Campus map and key (PDF, 478kB). If you are a visitor and you need disabled parking, contact the department you are visiting to book a space.

Further information can be found on the University's website.

How can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Please email: Helen.Mawdsley@bristol.ac.uk.

What should I do if I have access requirements?

The Bill Brown Design Suite has an accessible entrance on Woodland Road. If you have any additional access requirements, please e-mail Helen.Mawdsley@bristol.ac.uk at least one week in advance of the event to discuss any requirements you have, and we will do our best to help you.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No. We will have a list of names at the door. All guests will be required to sign in at the event.

Can I update my registration information?

Yes. You may edit your registration via the 'View and manage your order online' link at the bottom of your confirmation email.

Is it ok if the name on my ticket or registration doesn't match the person who attends?

No. Name badges will be printed in advance of the event, so it is important that the guest list reflects those who will be attending. Names and affiliations may also be made available to delegates for networking purposes. If you are not able to attend, please cancel your registration, so that someone on the wait list will be allowed to attend.



This project is funded by the UK Quantum Technology Hub for Quantum Communications Technologies (EPSRC ref: EP/M013472/1). The Hub is a partnership of eight UK Universities, numerous private sector companies, and public sector bodies collaborating to exploit quantum physics to develop secure communications technologies and services.
