    The Epsilon-Near-Zero (ENZ) supercoupling effect allows electromagnetic radiation to be fully transmitted through narrow distorted channels. ENZ materials are also able to control emission and interaction of quantum emitters. Here we propose the combination of both properties in order to facilitate distant quantum emitters interaction and form what we call an ENZ network for quantum applications. We show that such systems present very low losses and are able to coherently transmit radiation, making possible to excite other emitters or nanoparticles with high efficiency.
