A switch guaranteeing a minimum amount of memory space for desired connection while allowing efficient dynamic change of maximum memory space that can be used by a connection. Only an amount of memory space which is required for guaranteeing the minimum amount of memory space is reserved. When the reserved space is decremented due to new cells being received on connections, the maximum memory space reserved for each connection is dynamically increased. For multicast connections, only a single copy of the cell data is stored even though a multicast cell is transmitted on several ports. Multicast cells can also be processed using the same signals used for processing unicast cells.
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.
