A hierarchical traffic management system and method (i.e., a QoS behavioral model) are disclosed herein. The system includes a classifier operable to identify and classify incoming traffic streams and a queuing system. The queuing system includes a plurality of queues and is operable to apply scheduling policies to the traffic streams. The queues of the queuing system each include enqueue attributes configured to control a depth of the queue and dequeue attributes configured to control scheduling of the queue. The dequeue attributes include minimum bandwidth, maximum bandwidth, excess bandwidth, and priority, wherein each of the queues has one or more of the dequeue attributes defined.
* 2005/0094,643 Method of and apparatus for variable length data packet transmission with configurable adaptive output scheduling enabling transmission on the same transmission link(s) of differentiated services for various traffic types
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.
