The designers sitting at multiple sites can access a FPGA prototyping system remotely and prototype IP and SoC by utilizing one or more FPGAs without any issue. It takes a lot more work than just increasing the capacity of FPGA for large SoCs. This article from SemiWiki outlines the SoC prototyping system that is quite sophisticated compared to previous generation FPGA systems, that allows easy IP based prototyping for large SoCs.
