A method for scheduling a plurality of cells of N number of prioritized queues in a node of an ATM network is provided, wherein each prioritized queue has a static priority different from priorities of other queues. In response to receipt of a cell having a jth static priority, the cell is held for a holding time so that the cell turns to be an eligible cell for transmission. Meanwhile, an empty flag EF.sub.j `0` or `1` is generated on a time slot basis, wherein the empty flag EF.sub.j `0` or `1` represents whether or not there exists the eligible cell for transmission in the corresponding jth prioritized queue; and the jth prioritized queue is switched to a higher prioritized switch in a jth prioritized switch based on the empty flag EF.sub.j, wherein the jth prioritized switch has a jth and a lower input terminals, which are connected to the jth prioritized queue and the lower prioritized switch, respectively, and an output terminal, which is connected to the higher prioritized switch.
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.
