A method for shaping network traffic in a computer network is described for packet data networks. The method includes one or more packet queues for traffic having a plurality of different desired packet transfer rates, each queue being assigned to a connection having a predetermined desired packet transfer rate. Each incoming data packet is directed to the appropriate queue. Each of a plurality of timing circuits operate at a different frequency in a series of frequencies. The frequencies are selected so that the desired packet transfer rate for a connection can be established by summing outputs from more than one of the timing circuits.
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.
