Abstract

Uncoupled multicore fibres (MCFs) are a suitable solution for integrating the quantum communication systems in WDM networks. The performance of the QKD layer is in fact impaired by nonlinear effects generated by the classical channels. MCFs allow a smart management of classical and quantum key carriers coexistence, preserving the secret key rate generation thanks to a proper choice of the wavelength-core allocation plan.
