Digital twins are designed to detect and prevent problems, predict performance, and optimize processes through real-time analytics to deliver business value.
A digital twin allows businesses to perform analyses and monitor physical assets, systems, and processes to gain insights, identify problems before they occur, prevent downtime, and develop predictions virtually without the need to dedicate large amounts of material resources to the effort.
Digital twins have become an important part of the technological evolution, especially in tandem with 5G and AI. AI enhances digital twins, enabling the technology to look at what-if scenarios and run simulations, providing previously unavailable insights. This improved situational awareness of cause and effect supports more agile and sustainable decision-making.
The 5G digital twin is a new approach to testing and assurance providing an emulated, software replica of the 5G physical network that allows for continuous prototyping, testing, assuring and self-optimization of the living network.
Sector analysts believe that 5G along with AI and digital twin technology will play key roles in future technological advances such as smart cities. Digital twins and AI will especially play vital roles as cities strive to reduce their environmental impact. 5G has the latency and throughput to capture near real-time IoT data and support digital twins.
5G, AI and digital twins can create a virtual emulation to help planners understand how to reduce congestion, emissions, pollution and other challenges by analyzing data from various sources and testing different variables in the virtual model.
By deploying digital twins and AI, organizations obtain granular insights into their operations, enabling them to achieve significant benefits spanning cost savings, efficiency gains and improved sustainability efforts.
Product quality is also enhanced through a reduction in defects and the accelerated resolution of issues throughout the lifecycle. In addition, innovation increases through more frequent and comprehensive development.
