A method for managing resources in a hybrid wired/wireless local area network (LAN) includes reserving bandwidth for a network device. The reserving of the bandwidth is based, at least in part, on a device hierarchy established within the hybrid LAN. The hierarchy is utilized for one or more of bandwidth reservation, bandwidth sharing, and/or bandwidth allocation within the hybrid LAN. In response to a communication session associated with the network device, at least a portion of the reserved bandwidth may be allocated for use by the network device. The at least a portion of the reserved bandwidth may be used during the communication session. A request for bandwidth may be received by one or both of the network device and/or a second network device.
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.
