With the standards released almost a year ago to the day of the conference, the normal cycle for chip production is over 2 years. And thanks to the work of companies like Steepest Ascent, the library of standards actually has a chance to be interoperable. Even the largest companies will use the products from our speakers to assure some sort of independent testing.
So as Verizon pushes to get LTE out there as soon as possible the chipset is going through the iterative stage of development. This further points out that Verizon is willing to bleed a little on the edge like it did with FIOS.
However, the odds are likely that the development effort will have a few hiccups along the way. The question is will it be only apparent to the network operator, or will it be noticable to the end user.
I got the impression from Chris Rowen, that a great deal of the issues can be hidden in the development of the chips, if you have a bold enough vision of the processing strategy.
In the end the testing that Synopsys enables a sense of security in rolling out services.
I thank the panel for enlightening me.
