A communication control apparatus connected between a transmission path and a processing unit which apparatus includes a table memory for storing the number of received frames which are in the state waiting for protocol processing in correspondence with connection identifiers, a first processor responsive to reception of a new frame from the aforementioned transmission path for making decision by referencing the memory table mentioned above as to whether or not the number of the received frames corresponding to the connection identifier of the newly received frame and waiting for the protocol processing has reached a threshold value for thereby abandoning the aforementioned newly received frame when that number has reached the threshold value and, if otherwise, placing the newly received frame in the state waiting for the protocol processing, and a second processor for executing a predetermined protocol processing on the received frame in the state waiting for the protocol processing.

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.
