A traffic control method and system are disclosed for scheduling fixed size traffic elements from a number of queues for transmission on a link. Each queue has associated traffic parameters. The system comprises a scheduler and a calendar in a memory for storing a transmission schedule of the queues. The scheduler shapes the transmission schedule by updating the schedule in the calendar in dependence on inputted traffic parameters of each queue. The system also includes an amplifier to amplify the traffic parameters by a factor K prior to input to the scheduler, the scheduler and calendar being adapted to operate using the amplified parameters.
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.
