I will present results from our prototype network, in which two calcium ions are entangled with one another over a distance of 230 m, via a 520 m optical fiber channel linking two buildings. The ion-ion entanglement is based on ion-photon entanglement mediated by coherent Raman processes in optical cavities. I will discuss the advantages of trapped ions for quantum networks and the role that cavities can play as quantum interfaces between light and matter at network nodes. After examining the key metrics for remote entanglement, we will consider the necessary steps to extend this work to long-distance networks of entangled quantum processors.
