Cost optimisation comes where we know how to get more out of the investments we have already made and technologies and companies moving into the virtual networks. Then you have to work out to validate them, benchmark them and built your capacity out of that virtual network. We are also becoming innovative and try to generate more margin from our products which is also a challenge.
