Quantum computing can provide a solution for many problems that classical communication networks encounter, but the knowledge gap between these two is not bridged yet. Accordingly, this paper has proposed directions, evaluations, and futuristic quantum solutions to cloud-based cellular communications. This paper shows the effect of using quantum entanglement phenomena upon the classical cloud network, particularly using an entanglement theory to decrease the enlarged signaling cost delay that

Through modeling the latency of both paradigms, this paper promises a delay reduction when adapting a quantum method into the mobile cloud networks. This paper also models the power consumption (PC) and energy efficiency of the traditional and quantum-based cloud networks. This paper also shows, via modeling the PC, that installing a quantum-based paradigm is not a power costly method; rather, it shows identical power and energy efficiency figures with a possibility of improvement.
