A system for optical communication between first and second optical terminal stations, containing a plurality of working optical transmission lines each for connecting between the first and second optical terminal stations, a protection optical transmission line. Each of the first and second optical terminal stations contains a plurality of working pieces of optical terminal equipment, connected to the respective working optical transmission lines, a protection piece of optical terminal equipment connected to the protection optical transmission line, and a plurality of bidirectional optical signal paths, provided corresponding to the respective working pieces of optical terminal equipment, and each operative to connect the corresponding working piece of optical terminal equipment to the protection piece of optical terminal equipment.
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.
