RTM (Release to Manufacturing) is the final engineering milestone of our product development cycle, and is a significant achievement for all of us. We could not have reached this point without the participation of more than 450 customers and partners who have all worked with us on early deployment and testing of the products. The feedback that we’ve received from you has helped deliver a set of products we are very excited about.
