A method for bandwidth allocation for delivery of multimedia data from at least one server to one or more clients over a network. The method includes the steps of: determining a maximum flow rate and a minimum flow rate for each client; determining a flow rate range for each client as given by the difference between the maximum flow rate and the minimum flow rate; sorting the one or more clients according to the flow rate range; initializing a current flow rate for each client as the minimum flow rate and summing the flow rate into total server flow rate; establishing remaining server bandwidth; and allocating the remaining server bandwidth to clients, based upon the sorted client's flow rate ranges.
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.
