Systems and methods for data traffic management in a node in a data network. A data path element receives data packets from the network and receives instructions from a buffer management element, coupled to the data path element, whether specific data packets are to be accepted for buffering or not. This decision is based on the status of a buffer memory bank coupled to the data path element. If a data packet is accepted, a data unit descriptor for that packet is queued for processing by a scheduler element coupled to the data path element. The scheduler element determines when a specific data packet is to be dispatched from the buffer memory bank based on the queued data unit descriptor.
Please note there is up to 60 days of latency in this Status indicator for certain status conditions. You can obtain up-to-date Status indicator readings by ordering PAIR for the file.
An application with the status "Published" (which means it is pending) may be recently abandoned, but not yet updated to reflect its abandoned status. However, an application filed less than one year ago is unlikely to be abandoned.
A patent with the status "Granted" may be recently expired, but not yet updated to reflect its expired status. However, it is highly unlikely a patent less than 3.5 years old would be expired.
An application with the status "Abandoned" is almost always current, but there is a small chance it was recently revived and the status not yet updated.
