PatentMarks: devices transferring files over cellular or WiFi networks = OBVIOUS & PRIOR ART...
Authored by: JamesK on Thursday, June 06 2013 @ 12:11 PM EDT
"A telecommunications switching system employing multi-protocol routing
optimization which utilizes predetermined and measured parameters in accordance
with a set of user priorities in determining the selection of a
telecommunications path to be utilized for transmitting a data file to a remote
destination. The switching system has a first memory for storing the data file
to be transferred, a second memory for storing predetermined parameters such as
cost data associated with each of the telecommunications paths, a third memory
for storing a set of user priorities regarding the transmission of data files,
and means for measuring the value of variable parameters such as file transfer
speed associated with each of the telecommunications paths."

Any CCNA or anyone else who has studied routing protocols knows about this.
Routing protocols such as OSPF and EIGRP use cost metrics to determine the
optimal route. As for memory at each end, wouldn't that be any computer made in
the past 70 years or more? As for multi-protocol, Cisco and other routers have
been doing that for many years with IPX, Appletalk, IPv4 and now IPv6. Telecom
networks such as X.25, frame relay and ATM can likewise carry any protocol you
throw at them and have done so for decades. I'm sure the phone companies could
also teach these guys a few things about optimal path selection.

Ham Radio Prior Art
Authored by: lnuss on Thursday, June 06 2013 @ 07:43 PM EDT
"#2 - I have a couple of wireless devices that could go quite a distance
with RS-232 connectors that I have had for a very very long time, that did just
that, transfer files over wireless. Hey, you could even transfer by HAM Radio
for a long long time too? = TONS of PRIOR ART."

I was doing this with many others on packet radio (including a TCP/IP network)
with AX.25 and KA9Q packages on ham radio back in the late '80s and early '90s.
I even still have a book from the "8th Computer Networking Conference"
which I attended and which was held in Colorado Springs, CO on Oct. 7 1989,
containing numerous papers presented at that conference, including:

* A Study of High Speed Packet Radio
* KA9Q Internet Protocol Package On The Apple Macintosh
* Design Of A Next Generation Packet Network.

And over 20 more papers. Also AT&T (and other telcos) were using wired and
wireless networking back then.
