"Digital twin technology is becoming increasingly important for predicting and monitoring real-world events and entities."


5G networks and services are extremely complex, which makes it challenging for vendors and mobile network operators (MNOs) to predict future issues, optimise and expand their existing systems and resolve problems. The concept of digital twins enables them to create digital representations of their networks to overcome these problems.
