An important idea in quantum networks is that of employing virtual edges or 'short-cuts' between quantum nodes. These edges, which are shared entangled pairs between two nodes that are not directly connected 'physically', are expected to reduce the average latency of entanglement distribution in quantum network routing. In this work, we show how to create such edges on an existing discrete event simulator for quantum networks called SeQUeNCe, and study the impact that these edges have on latency. Additionally, we implement a distributed routing algorithm on the simulator and demonstrate its use in conjunction with the virtual edges. We observe a reduction in latency when short-cuts are used, as is expected. Thus, with these modifications, we believe that SeQUeNCe (and other similar simulators) can be used for experimenting with advanced quantum networking protocols. © 2021 IEEE.
