A packet scheduling apparatus corrects an overhead amount between a DSL rate and a packet rate, converts DSL rate information to the packet rate, and shapes the IP packets from the Internet such that the IP packets are delivered at a transmission rate equal to or lower than the packet rate. An IP/ATM converter converts the IP packets from the packet scheduling apparatus to ATM cells. A DSL multiplexer has a DSL current rate detector for supplying DSL rate information indicative of a currently set DSL rate, and transmits the ATM cells from the IP/ATM converter or the IP packets from the packet scheduling apparatus to user terminals through DSL processing using telephone lines.
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.
