The present invention provides a communication device, comprising: transmission means for transmitting a plurality of data segments via a packet communication network, each of the data segments including a sequence number, the data segments being transmitted in sequence number order; receiving means for receiving an acknowledgement indicating a data segment which the destination device requests the communication device to transmit next; retransmission means for changing a transmission rate and fro retransmitting one of the data segments in a case that the communication device has not received an acknowledgement including an acknowledgement number greater than a sequence number included in the retransmitted data segment when a predetermined time elapses following transmission of the original data segment; control means for determining a subsequent data segment to be transmitted next, and for controlling a transmission rate on the basis of a category of the acknowledgement and also information included in the acknowledgement.
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.
