Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) is a relatively mature technology that has been commercially available for point-to-point links for more than two decades. In recent years systems have become available that allow for the coexistence and switching between the coexistence of quantum and classical channels. Integration of these QKD systems with high-speed optical-layer encryption has provided additional means of securing classical networks. Demonstration and QKD management systems have enabled more complex topologies enabling ring, star, or mesh configurations. This panel will discuss these advances and what is likely to come next.
