An apparatus is provided for switching data between input and output lines. The input and output lines are coupled to a number of line termination boards which are interconnected by a network. The line termination boards comprise a data block processor which for each switch interval combines data from the input connections (such as time slots) associated with output lines of another line termination board and an interface for transmitting the combined data to these over the network. A mapping processor generates mapping data that maps data of the combined data to the output connections. The mapping data is transmitted to the receiving line termination board which comprises a de-mapping processor which allocates data of the combined data to the appropriate output connections in response to the mapping data.
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.
