IBM and Nokia Siemens Networks announce mobile edge computing platform
Posted on 26-Feb-2013 07:32. | Tags Filed under: News.



Nokia Siemens Networks and IBM have announced a collaboration to deliver the world’s first mobile edge computing platform that can run applications directly within a mobile base station allowing mobile operators to create a unique mobile experience, relieve the ever increasing strain on network infrastructure and bring completely new solutions to market.

This new platform can accelerate the delivery of media-rich services by delivering content directly from the base station, ensuring enhanced quality of experience for consumers in the face of ever increasing data traffic growth. The platform also enables a new generation of low-latency services with device presence to be delivered to consumers, creating new possibilities for mobile gaming, augmented reality, smarter traffic and public safety offerings, and more.

Improved latency can enable high-value vertical solutions that rely on big data-driven analytics to work on very large amounts of information in real time. For example, IBM’s City in Motion solution can analyze radio information to estimate how people are moving through a city, identify their mode of transport, and configure a cities transport network in real time to ensure optimum performance.

Nokia Siemens Networks Liquid Applications and IBM’s WebSphere Application Service Platform for Networks (ASPN) together provide an environment for operators to manage the many applications that will be deployed to the mobile edge. Liquid Applications is part of Nokia Siemens Networks Liquid Broadband framework enabling a unique interaction between a mobile subscriber’s smart device, their applications and the mobile network.

The company’s Radio Applications Cloud Server (RACS) is fully integrated with the Nokia Siemens Networks’ Flexi Multiradio Base Station and features access to real-time network data that has never been exploited before. RACS integrates IBM’s ASPN platform and provides a standards-based cloud runtime environment, and is designed to allow mobile operators to deploy, run and integrate applications to the mobile edge.

“Liquid Applications is set to redefine the mobile broadband experience,” said Dirk Lindemeier, head of Liquid Net at Nokia Siemens Networks. “It creates a completely new base for innovation in an increasingly commoditized connectivity market and enables the creation of new value from mobile networks.”

“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,” said Phil Buckellew, vice president, IBM Mobile Enterprise. “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.”
