Vodafone, a technology communications company, has collaborated with Esri and AWS to develop a nationwide digital twin for its UK mobile network. The platform, built on Amazon Web Services, is designed to enhance Vodafone’s nationwide 5G rollout and supplemental services.
To make data-driven decisions, Vodafone had earlier relied on Esri’s geographic information system (GIS) to determine the ideal location of cell towers and improve mobile coverage.
However in an effort to optimize the UK network rollout, Vodafone developed a location intelligence platform for understanding what its UK network looked like.
This digital twin is the first UK national digital twin to be built to support telecom infrastructure deployment
