Integrated mobility management mechanisms monitor a mobile host's degree of mobility and the applications it executes. Mobile hosts move between wireless-access, micro-mobility domains interconnected through a backbone network. While the mobile host is stationary, MIP-LR and SIP systems operate to ensure TCP and RTP/UDP packets, respectively, traveling to/from the mobile host are properly routed through the backbone to the host's current domain. An MMP system routes packets through this domain. As the host moves within a domain, the MMP system updates the domain routing to the mobile host's new location. As the mobile host moves between domains, the host obtains a new IP address and the MMP system establishes routing within the new domain to the mobile host's new location. In addition, the MIP-LR and SIP systems activate to ensure the TCP and RTP/UDP packets, respectively, are automatically re-routed through the backbone to the new domain.
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.
