Section I: Contracting authority
Section II: Object
PNE 220030 - LUQCIA quantum project
The objective of the purchase is to implement a live QKD network to validate various QKD topologies Ring, Star, Chain and learn about QKD implementation and performance. We also want to be able to demonstrate the impact of eavesdropping a quantum communication channel. We will provide hands on experience to SnT students who could use the QKD systems. This purchase is required for the implementation of activities planned under LUQCIA project funded by SMC. The purchase will be fully covered by the project. The Equipment is a set of transmitters and receivers for the implementation of QKD. The purchase includes the necessary equipment for the implementation of three (3) QKD links. For each link, a transmitter and a receiver are required. The offer of IDQeach Cerberis XGR-P2P-1551-18 item is a transmitter and a receiver set. The item Cerberis XGR-P2P-1310 is a very similar set with slightly different performance and operation frequencies.
Section IV: Procedure
The Tender Commission took note of the technical reasons addressed to defend the case file transmitted to its attention, based on which it seems possible to launch a negotiated procedure without publication of a notice in application of Article 64 (2) b) ii of the amended Law dated 8 April 2018 on Public Tenders. In fact, there’s only one company able to provide a complete solution which meets technical requirements defined as part of the University of Luxembourg SnT Project. The services proposed by this sole company would be a unique solution for the development and the ultra-secure and ultra-reliable communication testing related to LUQCIA project.
