Since you mentioned it, I wanna jump into this next section for and let's have a a little bit of a talk about the the VPAC alliance for a second here. In the previous section, just to recap, we we talked about how how to how to keep up with the evolving business demands and and maintain mission critical service availability and how grid modernization has led to the digitization of systems without sacrificing reliability. So let me set up this next section with a quest We know that to enable that smart grid. We need to combine technological expertise and foster collaboration. So advantech and Intel VMware ABB have all joined in a new virtual protection automation and control alliance VPAC for short. To to address those industry challenges. Chris Powell, I'm gonna address this to you. Can you can you share with us the vision and goal of the vpac alliance? Sure, Matt. So just like a previously, we saw that the virtualization is key for the digitalization. So if we keep going on the path of the virtualizing or digitalizing the grid using the virtualization technology, I think one of the key requirement is that it needs to be driven by the customer. At the end of the day, the customer is or the utilities worldwide. So that's kind of what we saw that getting everybody together customer on the top and whole ecosystem together is is going to change things. So Intel has decided to play market leadership role supporting partnerships and ecosystem acceleration efforts through the v pack alliance. So what what we are trying to do in this alliance, like a think like a sandwich Okay. In that, we have a customers on the top. Okay. And the hardware on the bottom because both needs to come together. Then have the infrastructure layer on on the next layer, then have that large OEMs like ABB, on on the next layer of it, then have all the EPCs together. Now we have put the whole ecosystem together to help utilities achieve their goal. So that was kind of the vision of Intel to bring everybody together define architecture, which is driven by the utilities, and then we can take that architecture and implement utility by utility. So that is the basic fundamental goal of the v pack alliance. Thank you. Thank you. It's very interesting. I love love the analogy. And the the idea of, you know, AI seems to be the virtual the the viral topic of of the day And I can't wait to see how you guys will roll that what kind of role that will play possibly as it as it matures in the future. But let's let me let me review the challenges. Let's see, Matt. Let me add one thing here, as you mentioned, the AI. Because what happens when we build this intelligent edge at the edge of the grid in the substation all the data is consolidated at that location. Once we have data there, then we can apply that the AI and deep learning technologies to extract more intelligence out of the data number one for greater visibility and number two for faster decision making. So that's it will really may keep the data driven system. Excellent.
