We propose network benchmarking: a procedure to efficiently benchmark the quality of a quantum network link connecting quantum processors in a quantum network. This procedure is based on the standard randomized benchmarking protocol and provides an estimate for the fidelity of a quantum network link. We provide statistical analysis of the protocol as well as a simulated implementation inspired by nitrogen-vacancy center systems using Netsquid, a special purpose simulator for noisy quantum networks.
