As pointed out by the Examiner (Ans. 11-12), “[t]hough understanding the claim language may be aided by the explanations contained in the written description, it is important not to import into a claim limitations that are not a part of the claim.” SuperGuide Corp. v. DirecTV Enterprises., Inc., 358 F.3d 870, 875 (Fed. Cir. 2004). A pertinent dictionary definition is: “associate . . . v.t. 1. to connect or bring into relation.” THE RANDOM HOUSE DICTIONARY OF THE ENGLISH LANGUAGE 126 (2d ed. unabridged 1987). The Specification uses the term “associated” and related terms in various contexts (see, e.g., Spec ¶¶ [0002]-[0003], [0005]-[0007]. [0016]-[0019]; [0021]-[0028]), none of which evidence an intent to deviate from the ordinary meaning of “associated” or limit the meaning of “associated” to “registered.” We construe the modifier “uniquely” in the context of the claim language “uniquely associated” to mean that the ID is associated with a particular distinct service node, and no other service node.
