A packet congestion control technique employs an Active Flow Random Early Drop (AFRED) method to provide a service requiring a predetermined bandwidth with a stable Quality of Service (QoS) even when network congestion occurs. The packet congestion control technique includes: receiving at least one packet flow; defining identifiers for the received at least one packet flow; numbering each of the defined at least one packet flow; calculating a queue length of each of the at least one packet flow; allocating a maximum queue threshold value, a minimum queue threshold value, and a maximum probability value of each of the at least one packet flow; and dropping or accepting an incoming packet of a flow according to the calculated packet drop probability upon a queue length of a currently received packet being between the maximum queue threshold value and the minimum queue threshold value.
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.
