The corporations have been chosen from a bunch of 54 front-end service suppliers. They have been chosen in response to the April 2022 request for submissions in taking part within the prototype train.
The 54 corporations meet a big variety of the “essential capabilities” listed within the supply, however solely the highest 5 corporations met the “particular capabilities” wanted for the given use case.
