The collaboration with IBM will allow mobile operators to reduce pressure on network infrastructures.

The companies claim that the platform can speed up service delivery by delivering content directly from the base station ensuring enhanced mobile experience in face of data traffic growth.

The new platform aims to help in delivering low-latency services with device presence creating possibilities for mobile gaming, augmented reality, smarter traffic and public safety.

An environment will be offered by the companies by combining Nokia Siemens Networks Liquid Applications and IBM’s WebSphere Application Service Platform for Networks (ASPN) to manage the applications that will be installed to the mobile edge.

Nokia Siemens Networks Liquid Net head, Dirk Lindemeier, said that Liquid Applications is set to redefine the mobile broadband experience.

"It creates a completely new base for innovation in an increasingly commoditized connectivity market and enables the creation of new value from mobile networks," Lindemeier said.

IBM Mobile Enterprise vice president, Phil Buckellew, said that pushing applications, processing and storage to the edge of the mobile network allows large complex problems to be distributed into many smaller and more manageable pieces and to be physically located at the source of the information it needs to work on.

"This enables a huge amount of rich data to be processed in real time that would be prohibitively complex and costly to deliver on a traditional centralized cloud," Buckellew said.
