IT&E to bring quantum cryptography to the Marianas

IT&E announced earlier this month that through its partnership with SK Telecom, IT&E’s network will soon be equipped with quantum key distribution technology from ID Quantique to strengthen the security of 5G and LTE data transmission and reception.


IT&E will be utilizing technology by ID Quantique to prevent hacking and digital eavesdropping. The technology generates a random secret key that encrypts and decrypts messages between two parties to prevent any outside party from accessing the data.

Back in September 2018, IT&E announced its strategic partnership with SK Telecom. The alliance allows IT&E to draw from SK Telecom’s wealth of knowledge gained from its 5G network deployments.

“Quantum cryptography will drive new levels of innovation and security around the world” declares Jim Oehlerking, CEO of IT&E. We’re excited to work with SK Telecom and ID Quantique to bring this technology to the Marianas. IT&E’s data network will be the securest network in the Guam and the CNMI.”
