Computer system, method and program for making routing decisions. A best routing path according to an OSPF, IGRP, EIGRP, BGP or other routing function that can provide multiple routing paths is determined. A first multiplicity of routers in the best routing path is determined. If each of the first multiplicity of routers had a degree of availability and/or quality of signal during a predetermined prior interval that met predetermined respective thresholds, the message packet is forwarded to a next hop in the best routing path. If not, a second multiplicity of routers in a second best routing path determined according to said OSPF, IGRP, EIGRP, BGP or the other routing function is identified. If each of the second multiplicity of routers had a degree of availability and/or quality of signal during a predetermined prior interval that met respective thresholds, the message packet is forwarded to a next hop in the second best routing path.
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.
