P1913 - Software-Defined Quantum Communication

The purpose of the Software Defined Quantum Communication (SDQC) standard is to define a classical interface to quantum communication devices that permits these devices to be reconfigured to implement a variety of protocols and measurements.This standard defines the Software-Defined Quantum Communication (SDQC) protocol that enables configuration of quantum endpoints in a communication network in order to dynamically create, modify, or remove quantum protocols or applications. This protocol resides at the application layer and communicates over Transmission Control Protocol/Internet Protocol. The protocol design facilitates future integration with Software-Defined Networking and Open Networking Foundation OpenFlow. The standard defines a set of quantum device configuration commands that control the transmission, reception, and operation of quantum states. These device commands contain parameters that describe quantum state preparation, measurement, and readout.
