A voice over IP (VOIP) network 8 includes a graphical proxy server 34 that allows 'dumb' terminals (32) to act as SIP phones or H.323 phones; only the graphical proxy server (34) needs to support the underlying signaling protocol. The graphical proxy server (34) includes a graphical server (40) and a terminal management system (42). The terminal management system (42) handles the calls for each associated graphical terminal (32) and interacts with the graphical server (40) to provide a customized GUI for each graphical terminal (32) to display current call status. Each terminal (32) has a respective instance of a terminal controller program (56) in the terminal management system (42). The terminal controller for a terminal (32) controls the terminal's GUI responsive to incoming SIP messages directed to the terminal and generates SIP messages responsive to user interaction with the terminal's GUI.
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.
