Metropolitan-scale Entanglement Distribution, with Co-existing Quantum and Classical Signals in a single fiber

May 7, 2024
Anouar Rahmouni, Paulina Kuo, Ya-Shian Li-Baboud, Ivan Burenkov, Yicheng Shi, Jabir Marakkarakath Vadakkepurayil, Nijil Lal Cheriya Koyyottummal, Dileep Reddy, Mheni Merzouki, Lijun Ma, Abdella Battou, Sergey Polyakov, Oliver T. Slattery, Thomas Gerrits
The development of prototype metropolitan-scale quantum networks is underway and entails transmitting quantum information via single photons through deployed optical fibers spanning several tens of kilometers. Among the major challenges in metropolitan

An Adaptable AI Assistant for Network Management

April 12, 2024
Amar Abane, Abdella Battou, Mheni Merzouki
This paper presents a network management AI assistant built with Large Language Models. It adapts at runtime to the network state and specific platform, leveraging techniques like prompt engineering, document retrieval, and Knowledge Graph integration. The

A Smart Network Repository Based on Graph Database

January 25, 2024
Amar Abane, Abdella Battou, Mheni Merzouki, Tao Zhang
To address the increasing complexity of network management and the limitations of data repositories in handling the various network operational data, this paper proposes a novel repository design that uniformly represents network operational data while

Experimental demonstration of local area entanglement distribution between two distant nodes, coexisting with classical synchronization

May 12, 2023
Anouar Rahmouni, Paulina Kuo, Yicheng Shi, Jabir Marakkarakath Vadakkepurayil, Nijil Lal Cheriya Koyyottummal, Ivan Burenkov, Ya-Shian Li-Baboud, Mheni Merzouki, Abdella Battou, Sergey Polyakov, Oliver T. Slattery, Thomas Gerrits
We successfully demonstrated polarization entanglement distribution and classical time synchronization using a high-accuracy precision time protocol between two quantum nodes located 250 meters apart using a single fiber simultaneously carrying both

Sub-200 ps Quantum Network Node Synchronization over a 128 km Link White Rabbit Architecture

May 12, 2023
Wayne McKenzie, Ya-Shian Li-Baboud, Mark Morris, Gerald Baumgartner, Anouar Rahmouni, Paulina Kuo, Oliver T. Slattery, Bruce Crabill, Mheni Merzouki, Abdella Battou, Thomas Gerrits
We show sub-200 ps synchronization between quantum networks nodes that are separated by two 64 km deployed fiber links, providing a 128 km link architecture. The architecture employs one grandmaster and two boundary White Rabbit system clocks and shows

Security Automation for Cloud-Based IoT Platforms

October 21, 2019
Robert B. Bohn, Mheni Merzouki, Charif Mahmoudi, Cihan Tunc
Internet of Things (IoT) is reshaping the way Cloud Service Providers (CSP) collect data from sensors. With billions of devices deployed around the world, CSP are providing platforms dedicated to IoT that provides advanced features for those devices. This

Cloud Security Automation Framework
