In this paper, we report on the performance of the SwissQuantum quantum key distribution (QKD) network. The network was installed in the Geneva metropolitan area and ran for more than one-and-a-half years, from the end of March 2009 to the beginning of January 2011. The main goal of this experiment was to test the reliability of the quantum layer over a long period of time in a production environment. A key management layer has been developed to manage the key between the three nodes of the network. This QKD-secure network was utilized by end-users through an application layer.

Please note: you need strong physics, EE, and some CS to have good understanding of it.
Good fun reading, not sure exactly yet how it can help our trading systems yet, but promising stuff, even though it is an application in the defense sector.
Its main purpose is originally proposed to design and build the world’s first Quantum
Network, delivering end-to-end network security via highspeed
Quantum Key Distribution (QKD), and testing that
Network against sophisticated eavesdropping attacks.
