Aliro Quantum Introduces Aliro Simulator For Organizations Designing and Constructing The World’s First Quantum Networks

Aliro Simulator saves organizations time and money by allowing them to identify issues, test configurations and explore use cases before network purchase or deployment 

BOSTON, December 12, 2023  —Aliro Quantum today announced the controlled availability of Aliro Simulator, a versatile, modular quantum network simulator equipped to model all portions of a quantum network from the smallest optical components to the largest heterogeneous networks. Building a quantum network can be extremely complex and time consuming, but Aliro Simulator offers customers the ability to evaluate and fine tune components, configurations and use cases while looking at accuracy, flexibility and scalability before they need to purchase or deploy anything. This release also includes a visualizer tool that allows users to graphically investigate the node level performance of a network design and set of protocols.

“Since its founding, Aliro has worked to make quantum technology accessible. Over the past two years, the company introduced AliroNet™, the world’s first full-stack entanglement-based quantum network solution and announced that we’re the network software provider for EPB, America’s first industry-led, commercially available quantum network,” said Dr. Prineha Narang, founder and Chief Technology Officer with Aliro Quantum. “The importance of design and simulation when building these types of networks cannot be overstated.  Aliro Simulator will allow organizations to test and identify issues, as well as make informed decisions about any trade offs.”

Aliro Simulator allows users to construct and simulate quantum networks at full scale all the way down to a low level of abstraction. Aliro Simulator implements discrete event simulation, multiple quantum state computation backends, generic quantum and classical device components, optical components, noise models, networking concept abstractions, and support classes.  Organizations are able to determine proof of value for implementing an entanglement-based quantum network prior to purchasing actual quantum networking hardware and software.

“As businesses continue to grow their modern networking and cybersecurity systems with quantum capabilities, they require validation of their strategic ambitions but are finding it difficult to test and evaluate these new technologies at scale,” said Carl Dukatz, global Quantum Computing lead at Accenture. “Assessment tools like the Aliro Simulator provide organizations with a valuable way to assess their quantum needs, establish proof of value, design to their requirements, and obtain guidance on how to best implement quantum networks – starting at the device level then expanding to the global view.”

“Being able to easily design and simulate quantum network infrastructures will be key to quantum’s success,” said Jim Ricotta, CEO, Aliro Quantum. “After an organization has identified goals, budget and risks for quantum projects, Aliro Simulator can show whether or not the designs for the network will provide value, and is flexible enough to model the whole network stack from the photonic level all the way up the protocol stack.”

Visit Aliro Quantum at booth #847 to see a demo of Aliro Simulator at the Department of Defense Intelligence Information System (DoDIIS) Worldwide Conference being held at The Oregon Convention Center In Portland, Ore. December 12-14, 2023.  Dr. Eric Ostby, Aliro Quantum Chief Product Officer, will also be speaking on Wednesday, December 13th at 4:30 PM on the DIA hosted Quantum Panel in Room C123-124.
