Quantum-based devices can process specific operations faster and more efficient than classical computers. Quantum computing creates possibilities that are not available for „legacy” information technology. We can use this technology for many applications, one of them is infocommunication. For example, data transfer and processing can be more efficient with quantum-capable nodes in wireless ad-hoc networks.
There are two quantum protocols used in communication networks: teleportation and superdense coding. In a quantum-based mobile network, every device has to determine the path to its destination before it sends information. This task is performed by routing protocols.
In this work, I present how information can be transported in an ad-hoc network of mobile nodes using routing protocols. Some physical implementations of teleportation and superdense coding are also described. In addition, I developed a simulator application to examine the behavior and performance of a specific routing protocol with various network settings.
