Network Digital Twin

Running the 5G network is a complex task, but it could be made easier, and more interactive, with a ‘digital twin’ of the network. A digital twin is a virtual replica of an object or system – a very complex computer model that uses the live data from the actual system.

In this area of research, the Wu Lab team are using machine learning techniques to help develop a digital twin for network slicing – these are some of the first steps towards making a digital twin of the entire 5G network.
