A wireless communications system includes a packet core network and a wireless access network that includes a base station and a terminal. The wireless communications system is capable of communications between terminals through a first path that includes the packet core network and communications between terminals through a second path that does not include the packet core network. The wireless communications system includes plural terminals; and a control station configured to be capable of processing related to proximity-based communications services between the plural terminals, obtaining identifiers of the plural terminals and position information related to positions of the plural terminals, by the processing related to the proximity-based communications services, and causing communication between the plural terminals to be executed by the second path, based on the identifiers of the plural terminals and the position information related to the positions of the plural terminals.
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.
