Sending a single data stream from a sending endpoint to a receiving endpoint, wherein both of the sending endpoint and the receiving endpoint each have multiple physical interfaces connecting the sending and receiving endpoint to multiple networks, respectively, is provided. The single data stream is partitioned into multiple data packets. A physical interface is designated on the sending side and the receiving side in accordance with a data capacity throughput of each of the multiple physical interfaces. Different portions of the partitioned data packets are then sent over different ones of the multiple physical interfaces in accordance with the designation. The single data stream is then reconstructed by combining received partitioned data packets into the single data stream in accordance with header information. An acknowledgment is sent to the sending endpoint indicating an amount of data received on each multiple physical interface, including any changes in the data capacity throughput.

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.
