Judge Andrews construes claims of patent aimed at speeding up transmissions over a network

Judge Andrews recently construed the terms of U.S Patent No. 8,069,225 claiming "a transaction predictor aimed at speeding up the transmission of transactions over a network." Riverbed Technology, Inc. v. Silver Peak Systems, Inc., C.A. No. 11-484-RGA (D. Del. May 3, 2013). Terms of the other two patents-in-suit, U.S. Patent Nos. 7,428,573 and 7,849,134, were also at issue; but the Court postponed consideration of those patents because the patents were under reexamination by the PTO. Id. at 1 n.1.

The Court construed the following terms:

"a transaction predictor"
"synthesize, based on past transactions"
"based [at least in part] on past transactions"
