Nokia and IBM collaborate on mobiles

Nokia and IBM have joined forces to provide wireless operators and service providers with a solution for content management and delivery.

The solution, called Digital Media for Mobile Devices (DM Mobile), combines the Nokia Delivery Server with IBM’s Digital Media Factory framework and enables service providers to offer new content services for mobile users, such as Java based mobile games, polyphonic MIDI ring tones, digital images, graphics, screen savers and icons.

The Nokia Delivery Server software will also be integrated with IBM’s Service Provider Delivery Environment (SPDE – pronounced ‘speed-ee’), an open standards based framework built on IBM’s WebSphere e-business infrastructure software.

The Nokia Delivery Server will be ported and made available for use on IBM Linux-based xSeries eServer systems.

Finally, the combined IBM/Nokia Download Server solution will be supported and demonstrated by the IBM Network Integration Laboratory in La Gaude, France as a specific solution that is integrated with the IBM SPDE and Digital Media Factory frameworks.

IBM Global Services will sell and support the resulting offering with consulting, installation, and integration.
