Mobile networks have gone through various stages of evolution with each stage aimed at addressing a wide range of challenges and limitations. During the early evolutions of mobile networks 2G, 2.5G, 3G are the key challenge to investigate in efficient and cost effective ways to delivering high data speeds. This has led to the proposals and development of 4G LTE networks based on a flat all-IP architecture with Internet based protocols. However, recent trends indicate that the Internet-like architecture on mobile networks has further enabled Internet based cloud service providers to provide Over- The-Top (OTT) applications to mobile devices bypassing, and competing with the mobile operator on services, such as voice, video, messaging, and gaming. This is a key motivation for cloud service providers and mobile operators to explore various opportunities in which they can both leverage on their existing infrastructures in order to efficiently deploy cloud services in mobile environments. In this paper, we study the challenges and limitations that constrains the efficient deployment of cloud services in mobile environments. Then we propose a collaborative approach in which the cloud service provider, and mobile operator can dynamically manage the underlying mobile network infrastructure resources to optimise the delivery of cloud services in mobile environments. This is achieved by using cloud management approaches with the ability to factor such as mobility and frequency spectrum of mobile resources while integrating the cloud service provider, and mobile operator cloud infrastructures.
