If the incentives get better, which I know they're working on, it would be great but right now we're buying year to year.Our licensing costs for this solution are approximately $100K a year for the switching part.It's around $160K a year for our license.This solution should be made more affordable.Our licensing fees are paid annually.We only have a yearly support contract, as we do not use any of the subscription-based functions at this time.The licensing fees for this solution are approximately $800,000 USD annually.
