The TM Forum concentrates a great deal of its efforts on the management of the infrastructure, and that's where I've been focusing a lot of my effort working with the various members on the issues as they arise on how do you efficiently manage and reduce the CAPEX and the OPEX in these environments and the various challenges that have arisen as new technologies have been being introduced. What we're seeing right now is the introduction of failure disruptive technologies such as the virtualization into the network fabric. We believe the forum is in a very unique position to help with that based on the experiences we've had in the past with similar technology introductions. We believe we can leverage a lot of that experience and help the industry avoid some of the pain points and move forward more rapidly in the introduction of this technology.
