Borrowed idea - but with potential
Thinking around the digital twin concet in telecom is for the most part borrowed from industrial context, with the same intent: avoiding having to send a person into the field to diagnose a problem (see JCB's example). In fact the concept has much greater potential when applied to network as a whole, or indeed to services. Since network change is always a delicate business, a digital twin that permits changes to be evaluated, experimented with, tried out and validated (not only at a box level) would seem to be of real value. Even if (or perhaps even especially!) if that change becomes entirely software controlled.
