There are currently 7 terms in this directory beginning with the letter Q.
QSFP Double Density: a QSFP device that doubles the number of channels and interfaces compared to a regular QSFP module. They have significantly more power consumption (15 Watts) and price.
Quad Small Form Factor Pluggable
The "big brother" of the SFP module format, with four lanes that allow for speeds four times higher than the corresponding SFP.QSFP
Quadrature Amplitude Modulation
A modulation process used in coherent systems that combines multiple levels of light intensity and phases of light to transmit more information in a light signal.QAM
A device that uses the properties of quantum mechanics (superposition, interference, entanglement) to perform calculations. In theory, these computers can solve certain computational problems (such as the factorization behind encryption) much faster than classical computers.
Quantum Key Distribution
A secure communication method that implements properties of quantum mechanics. These properties allow two communicating users to easily detect the presence of an eavesdropper.
Quantum Safe Encryption
Also called post-quantum or quantum-resistant encryption. Encryption algorithms that are thought to be secure against an attack by quantum computer.
