A loop method for determining transmission orders of asynchronous packets includes the steps of: classifying the asynchronous packets into a number of groups according to their lengths; and judging whether a length of a packet belonging to a longest-length packet group is smaller than or equal to a remained bandwidth of an asynchronous transmission period. If yes, the packet is transmitted in the asynchronous transmission period and the step is repeated to transmit other packets of the longest-length packet group. If not, it is judged whether a length of a packet belonging to a second-longest-length packet group is smaller than or equal to the remained bandwidth of the asynchronous transmission period to transmit the packets of the second-longest-length packet group. These steps are repeated until a shortest-length packet group is greater than the remained bandwidth.
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.
