Various methods and devices are provided to address the need for improved spectrum sharing. In one method, a broker network receives (501) from each bidder network of a group of bidder networks, a request for a spectrum allocation. The broker network sends (502) to the group of bidder networks an indication of a price and receives (503) from each bidder network an indication of accepted bandwidth corresponding to the price. Until (504) a broker exit condition is satisfied, the broker network iteratively performs the following: generates (505) a new price from the current price, sends (506) an indication of the new price to the group of bidder networks, and receives (507) an indication of accepted bandwidth corresponding to the new price from each bidder network of the group of bidder networks.
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.
