Review the technical challenges associated with real-world quantum networking, focusing primarily on fiber-based systems that are realizable in the near and medium term, and be introduced to commercial tools available to implement them. Practical issues encountered when using the installed fiber infrastructure, including noise arising from co-existing traditional communication channels and the stability of the time-delay and polarization transfer function of optical fiber, will be discussed. These issues can affect systems of different levels of complexity, ranging from simply distributing entangled photons to more complex applications requiring interference of multiple sources, in different ways leading to different technical solutions.
