Abstract

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 promise for metropolitan-scale quantum network node synchronization.
