WS-28: Workshop on Digital Twins over NextG Wireless Networks

WS-28: Workshop on Digital Twins over NextG Wireless Networks

In the beyond 5G and 6G era, complex real-world digital twins (DTs) are expected to emerge. These DTs will be applied to various sectors, such as manufacturing, healthcare, and transportation, promoting the digital transformation of industry and society. The integration of DTs and cutting-edge wireless networks will further revolutionize it. This convergence will enhance seamless bi-directional information flow between cyber and physical worlds, enable a more interconnected digital world, and facilitate innovative applications across various fields. Specifically, DTs play a pivotal role in the development and operation of next-generation (NextG) wireless networks by offering a sophisticated simulation and analysis platform that mirrors the real-world behavior of these physical systems. Using DTs, it is possible to anticipate network loads, identify potential points of failure, and assess the impact of different network configurations or technologies before they are implemented. This preemptive approach not only enhances the efficiency, reliability, and scalability of NextG wireless networks but also significantly reduces the time and cost associated with network planning and deployment. Therefore, it becomes increasingly attractive to deploy digital twins for future wireless networks.
