The concepts and technologies disclosed herein take advantage of the low latency in high-speed local area networks to retransmit more quickly than waiting for a computer to acknowledge a packet on a high latency network, such as the Internet, or waiting for a retransmit timeout. For instance, if a first computer operating in a local area network detects that a data packet has not yet been received by an outgoing network edge component within an expected time period, the first computer can infer that the data packet has not yet reached a second computer. In response, the first computer can retransmit the packet to the outgoing network edge component without the second computer being aware of the lost packet. Also, within a local area network, an incoming network edge component can preserve packets in a data buffer in case the first computer indicates it did not receive a packet.
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.
