A server platform is programmed to receive requests from the customer digital subscriber line modems for changing the customer's class of service for access to the Internet. The server platform can provide an immediate change in the bit rate of a platform digital subscriber line modem in response to a customer's request. The server platform can provide a service plan that automatically changes the bit rate of a platform digital subscriber line modem in response to a customer's request. The server platform can selectively provide a schedule that is followed to automatically change the bit rate of a platform digital subscriber line modem in response to a customer's request. In addition, the server platform can selectively provide an option to automatically increase the bit rate of a platform digital subscriber line modem when receiving streaming video or audio content from the Internet. A database is coupled to the Ethernet LAN to store the class of service status of each respective platform digital subscriber line modem.
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.
