We propose a novel approach to quantum cryptography systems merging, on a single bench top, entangled photons generation and their distribution using standard telecommunication technologies. We employ our technique for distributing photonic entanglement over a fully fibered network, and achieve unprecedented bit rates, which go beyond the state of the art for similar approaches, emphasizing the potential of our system for long-distance and high-speed quantum cryptography applications.
