A source IPv6 mobile node is configured for forwarding an IPv6 packet via an IPv4 connection with a destination IPv6 router. The IPv4 packet includes IPv4 source and destination addresses, a UDP source port and UDP destination port, and a synthetic tag address in the IPv6 destination address field. The synthetic tag address, a valid (routable) IPv6 care of address, has an address prefix routed to the IPv6 router. The address prefix specifies a forwarding protocol, the IPv4 destination address for the IPv6 router, and a site-level aggregation identifier. An address suffix for the synthetic tag address specifies the IPv4 source address, the UDP source port and UDP destination port. Hence, the synthetic tag address enables the destination IPv6 router to send an IPv6 reply packet back to the source IPv6 mobile node via the IPv4 network.
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.
