Therefore, based on the success of our customer products in the marketplace and the level of carriers' investment in Internet infrastructure, we believe NP-4 can significantly increase our revenues in the next few years. As for this year, we expect year-over-year growth in both Q1 and 2013, also when compared with 2011."
