A system (10) for communicating information associated with one or more subscribers includes a connecting link (50). A first switching system (14) coupled to the connecting link (50) communicates remote voice signals (60) and remote data signals (62) using the connecting link (50). A second switching system (14) coupled to the connecting link (50) includes an interface (56) to receive the remote voice signals (60) and the remote data signals (62) using the connecting link (50). The second switching system (14) also includes subscriber line ports (17) for receiving local voice signals (52) and local data signals (54) from subscribers. The interface (56) of the second switching system (14) selectively communicates the highest priority available signals using an outgoing link, voice signals (52, 54) having higher priority than data signals (60, 62). In a more particular embodiment, the remote voice signals (60) may have higher priority than the local voice signals (52).
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.
