17. A network node of a Radio Access Network for providing a service to a mobile terminal, comprising a processing unit and a memory, said memory containing instructions executable by said processing unit, whereby said network node is configured to perform operations to:
receive a first request for the service from the mobile terminal;
communicate with a server providing the service in response to the request received from the mobile terminal;
receive application software from the server providing the requested service, the application software configured to be executed at the network node to provide the mobile terminal with at least part of the requested service, wherein the application software is provided by the server responsive to the communicating;
provide the mobile terminal with said at least part of the requested service by executing the application software responsive to the first request;
receiving a second request related to the service from the mobile terminal wherein the second request is subsequent to the first request; and
provide the mobile terminal with at least part of the service requested in said second request on behalf of a provider of said service by executing the application software, wherein the second request terminates at the network node.
