Nokia Networks and Intel have announced the joint opening of a new UK mobile broadband innovation centre aimed at building and testing "a new breed" of mobile broadband applications.
The new facility is located in Bath, close to parent company Microsoft’s UK head office in Reading, and will look to develop new applications and services based on Nokia Networks’ Liquid Applications, powered by Intel technology-based servers, which can bring distributed cloud computing capabilities closer to mobile users.
"Intel is committed to innovation in mobile computing. By positioning intelligent computing platforms closer to mobile devices, we are enabling a richer, more customized user experience." said Brian Aherne, EMEA marketing director at Intel’s Communications Infrastructure Division.
"In partnering with Nokia Networks we are committed to foster the adoption of mobile edge cloud and enable an active, diverse and vibrant ecosystem with multiple operator partners."
