### Abstract

We present a quantum teleportation experiment in the quantum relay configuration using the installed telecommunication network of Swisscom. In this experiment, the Bell-state measurement occurs well after the entanglement has been distributed, at a point where the photon upon which data are teleported is already far away, and the entangled qubits are photons created from a different crystal and laser pulse than the teleported qubit.
