The present invention relates to an arrangement and a method for flow control of data packets in a communications system supporting communication of packet data. The arrangement comprises classifying means (1) for, by means of a number of parameters defining a number of data packet subflows, whereby each received packet belongs to one of the subflows. For each received data packet, an individual packet holding time is given by the size of the data packet and by the (desired) bandwidth of the subflow to which the packet belongs. It further comprises first queueing means (2) comprising one subflow queue (SFQ) for each subflow, such that received data packets are placed in the appropriate subflow queue, and one or more second queueing means (3), each comprising a circular timeslot array register, wherein for each timeslot a timeslot queue (TSQ) is provided. Data packets from the subflow queues are placed in the appropriate time slot queues in relation to a current time slot queue, the packets in which, if any, currently being output, such that the data packet holding times can be observed.
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.
