- D-Wave’s new open-source demonstration highlights how its Advantage(TM) quantum computing system can be used to tackle challenges in wireless channel decoding, a growing worldwide problem given the dramatic global growth in wireless connections
- Demonstration shows quantum computing’s ability to tackle challenges of this magnitude relative to classical computation
- Quantum and quantum-hybrid technologies offer value in helping network providers solve a variety of telco-related optimization problems
D-Wave Quantum (NYSE: QBTS), a leader in quantum computing systems, software and services, and the world’s first commercial supplier of quantum computers, recently announced the launch of a new open-source demonstration that highlights how its Advantage(TM) annealing quantum computing system can be used to tackle wireless channel decoding problems. The demo, available through the company’s Leap(TM) real-time quantum cloud service, identifies solutions for increasing transmission capacity for wireless and cellular networks using coordinated multipoint decoding.
As the number of mobile connections worldwide approaches 12 billion, the wireless industry requires new solutions to ensure high-quality service levels while reducing operational costs and power requirements. This newly launched demonstration shows how D-Wave’s annealing quantum processing unit (“QPU”) can improve transmission performance and reduce transmission errors, particularly in dense urban areas characterized by high noise and load. D-Wave’s demo runs in a Jupyter notebook, accessible on GitHub (https://ibn.fm/SIrGM) and the Leap quantum cloud service (https://ibn.fm/JgISJ).
Trevor Lanting, vice president of software, algorithms, and cloud services at D-Wave, said a wide variety of companies spanning a diverse set of industries recognize the value D-Wave’s technology can bring to driving operational excellence (https://ibn.fm/RKqQY). “In the world of wireless telecommunications, the high degree of complexity and large number of variables means a massive amount of computational power is required to solve challenging problems like increasing transmission capacity,” Lanting explained. “Our demonstration shows how well our annealing quantum computing system can tackle challenges of this magnitude relative to classical computation, which could be transformative to network service providers.”
The demonstration is the latest example of the company’s practical applicability of its quantum and quantum-classical hybrid solutions for the telecommunications industry. D-Wave recently announced work with LG U+, the Korea Advanced Institute of Science and Technology (“KAIST”), and Qunova Computing to propel the development of 6G low-earth-orbit satellite networks through connectivity of ground-to-satellite links (“SGLs”) and inter-satellite-links (“ISLs”). Other telecom-related applications that can benefit from the company’s quantum technologies include: employee scheduling for workforce resource management, network design and expansion planning, call center routing, scheduling and routing service vehicles, and more.
D-Wave’s customers interface with the company’s Advantage quantum computer through its Leap cloud service, which delivers real-time cloud-based access with enterprise-class performance and scalability. Using Leap, customers have developed quantum hybrid applications for use cases in manufacturing, logistics, financial services, life sciences, materials science, retail, and transportation, eliminating the need to wait hours, days, or even weeks to get viable answers to various problems. Its customer success stories demonstrate the company’s real-world value at a business scale (https://ibn.fm/8QmwS).
The company’s relentless pursuit of practical quantum computing has resulted in its technology being used by some of the world’s most advanced enterprises, including numerous Forbes Global 2000 companies. Commercial customers include blue-chip industry leaders like Mastercard, Deloitte, ArcelorMittal, Siemens Healthineers, Unisys, Accenture, BBVA, NEC Corporation, Pattison Food Group Ltd., DENSO, and Lockheed Martin. D-Wave owns one of the largest quantum computer intellectual property portfolios in the industry, including more than 210 issued U.S. patents and more than 100 peer-reviewed papers in leading scientific journals.
