A Cyclone Network Synchronization algorithm is presented that does not depend on highly stable and expensive clocks or hardware, yet it can synchronize nodes in a network with a very high degree of accuracy. It is very light-weight since no clock synchronization is performed, and subsequently does not incur any overhead in message passing. Instead, synchronization is done solely by listening to the regular network traffic. Finally, the amount of padding or time overhead incurred by the CNS algorithm is extremely small, even when used with system clocks that have high drift rates (e.g. 1000 PPM or more).
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.
