Obsidian Strategics expands range-extended communications patent portfolio with awards in France and Germany

Foundational patent is critical for high efficiency lossless transport at speed over continental and global distances

Calgary, AB – February 19, 2019 – Obsidian’s CEO, Mr. Bill Halina confirms that as the European patents come on line, Obsidian’s control over the global market for long distance RDMA over InfiniBand is near-complete.

As global data volumes continue to grow exponentially, so grows the need to migrate this data on a global basis with efficient, secure and stable transports. Obsidian pioneered the marriage of supercomputer class networking technologies with long haul optical networks, enabling data centers to communicate across great distances using their super-efficient native local area network protocols.

Described in patents awarded by all major developed jurisdictions including the USA, China, Japan, Israel, UK, Canada and most recently France and Germany, Obsidian’s range extension patents are fundamental to this form of communication which offers superior throughput, latency and jitter metrics across metro, regional and wide area networks.
