A statistical multiplexer is disclosed that includes interfaces for asynchronous and synchronous data equipment, and a CPU/control logic. The CPU/control logic cooperates with the interface for the synchronous data equipment for allocating bandwidth to synchronous data equipment when bandwidth is requested and for deallocating bandwidth when bandwidth is no longer required. The allocation and deallocation of bandwidth is controlled by predetermined control frames generated by the CPU/control logic. Such control frames are responded to by the synchronous data equipment interface of the multiplexer originating the control frame and the synchronous data equipment interface of the multiplexer receiving control frames.
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.
