A transmitter, a communication system, and a communication method of the same capable of realizing communication of more than a set bandwidth with respect to packet communication with a bandwidth guarantee set therefor by using the set bandwidth as the minimum guaranteed bandwidth, wherein when a transmitter transmits packet data, it decides whether or not packet communication guarantees a bandwidth based on a guaranteed bandwidth set in advance and, when guaranteeing the bandwidth, adds a first identifier to the packet data, while when not guaranteeing the bandwidth, adds a second identifier to the packet data and transmits the same to the network and wherein a relay unit connected to the network decides, in accordance with identifiers registered in advance and guaranteed bandwidths corresponding to same, whether or not the received packet data are bandwidth guaranteed, adds the first or second identifier to the packet data in accordance with the result of the decision, and transfers them to the next relay unit or a receiver side via the network.
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.
