Roughly described, a striping algorithm selects a route on which to transmit each next data segment, pseudorandomly from among a subset of eligible routes, the subset being chosen in dependence upon relative channel loading so far. Preferably each ingress node to a switching system chooses an outgoing route for each given next data segment, according to a pseudorandom algorithm, from among a respective given subset containing only those routes via which the amount of data sent from the ingress node during a respective prior time period is no greater than an average of the amount of data sent from the ingress node via any of its outgoing routes during the same prior time period.
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.
