# QuISP: a Quantum Internet Simulation Package

@article{Satoh2021QuISPAQ, title={QuISP: a Quantum Internet Simulation Package}, author={Ryosuke Satoh and Michal Hajdu{\vs}ek and Naphan Benchasattabuse and Shota Nagayama and Kenta Teramoto and Takaaki Matsuo and Sara Ayman Metwalli and Takahiko Satoh and Shigeya Suzuki and Rodney Van Meter}, journal={2022 IEEE International Conference on Quantum Computing and Engineering (QCE)}, year={2021}, pages={353-364} }

We present an open-source event-driven simulation package called QuISP built on top of the OMNeT++ discrete event simulation framework. Behavior of quantum devices in small quantum networks has been the focus of recent studies, it is still an open question how they will work in networks of practical size. QuISP is designed to simulate large-scale quantum networks to investigate their behavior under realistic, noisy and heterogeneous configurations. Our confidence in the simulator is supported…
