I'm afraid that I'll have to take your word on that. I was just giving my take on what I was reading in the press. Maybe the press was intentionally mislead inorder to give opportunities to buy. Wireless is going to be big.
Well if it helps any, I have a MSECE (signals and systems) from UC Santa Barbara. Have worked in Digital implementations since 1980.
Worked on Missile programs as systems engineer for Video link/Command link with alot of emphasis on multipath effects and countermeasures. This included flight testing with specific objectives to measure/quantify/model these effects.
As a matter of fact the main reason for the Link Margin requirement (link margin is the excess signal level required to insure proper link is trasmitting/receiving) is as a result of multipath issues! By far this is the dominate issue.
An effective/efficent implementation like VOFDM is almost like "best thing since sliced bread" in this broad band arena. Having said that there are other ways to slice bread. But having CSCO backing and this becoming a STANDARD, will insure BRCM success in this market. Remember the best technology does not always win, it is the STANDARD that will win. This is the lynch-pin to this strategy. IMHO
