A method for transmitting a plurality of data packets through a network. Each data packet is assigned to one of a plurality of priority queues and each priority queue has a service weight. A priority weight is assigned to each of the data packets and each priority weight has a value. Data packets are delivered from one of the priority queues until a service satisfied condition is met. The service satisfied condition is met when a combination of the values of the priority weights for each of the delivered data packets is equal to or is greater than the service weight assigned to the priority queue. A queuing switch for implementing this method is also discussed. The queuing switch includes an incoming data packet processor and a plurality of priority queues.
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.
