This disclosure is directed to techniques for communicating in an adaptive multicast network. In general, the disclosure is directed to communicating in an adaptive multicast network. This may be done by archiving, at a rendezvous point, multicast subscription information for terminal nodes in the adaptive multicast network, wherein the multicast subscription information comprises a dynamic list of receiver terminal nodes located within the adaptive multicast network that subscribe to particular multicast streams from one or more terminal nodes in the adaptive multicast network. A router receives a multicast stream from a sender terminal node. The router receives the multicast subscription information for the multicast stream sent by the sender terminal node from the rendezvous point. The router forwards the multicast stream to all receiver terminal nodes in the dynamic list of receiver terminal nodes indicated as subscribing to the multicast stream sent by the sender terminal node.
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.
