A technique for improving utilization of a data link coupled to a network. Scores are generated for one or more data flows that transfer onto the network via the data link. The scores are kept in a “scorecard” that represents a pool of data flows that are eligible to transfer data onto the data link when the data link becomes idle. Each score represents a rating of a particular data flow's eligibility to transfer data onto the data link when it becomes idle. A check is performed to determine if the data link is idle, and, if so, data associated with the highest scoring data flow are transferred onto the data link.
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.
