The Digital Twin

What is the 3D4U Digital Twin?

Description of the Digital Twin in Fiber Network-AI

Fiber Network-AI is a cutting-edge Fiber to the Home (FTTH) software solution designed to streamline the entire process of designing, building, and commissioning fiber optic networks. One of its standout features is the 3D4U Digital Twin, a fully integrated component that revolutionizes network planning and management.

In the context of Fiber Network-AI, the 3D4U Digital Twin is a comprehensive digital replica of the entire fiber optic network. This includes all underground, aerial, and facade network elements such as aerial cables, duct networks, manholes, and handholes. This serves as a dynamic and interactive model that mirrors the real-world network, providing precise, real-time data mapped to actual geographical coordinates.

Key Features of the 3D4U Digital Twin

  • GIS Integration: The 3D4U Digital Twin is embedded within the GIS, ensuring all network data is accessible and accurately represented in a geospatial context.
  • Real-time Updates: It reflects real-time changes and updates to the network, enabling continuous monitoring and management.
  • 3D Visualization: Provides a virtual 3D view of the network, enhancing the ability to visualize and analyze network components and layouts.
  • Augmented Reality: Incorporates AR capabilities, allowing users to overlay network data onto physical environments for better planning and troubleshooting.
  • Detailed Documentation: Captures and stores comprehensive data on all network components, facilitating detailed analysis and reporting.
  • Enhanced Collaboration: Enables multiple users to access and interact with the network model simultaneously, promoting teamwork and efficient project management.

Element recognition with A.I. and the Digital Twin

The Digital Twin module uses machine learning techniques that are applied to the data obtained from the mobile mapping process, which allows for unrivaled completeness and precision in the automated extraction of information.

Quickly catalog a large inventory

In addition to obtaining a complete mapping of the road surface with pavements, cycle paths, lanes, green areas and much more, it is possible to quickly catalog a large inventory of street furniture such as, for example, street lamps, traffic lights, trees and manhole covers, also classifying these last by type: sewerage, telecommunications, electricity network, etc…

Data enrichment and machine learning

  • In addition to the data obtained through the automated recognition process via AI, a photo interpretation process is envisaged carried out by qualified personnel aimed both at validating the automatic actions of machine learning and at enriching them with all that information impossible to obtain through automatic recognition.
  • The data thus validated will also be implemented with all the necessary information coming from cadastral databases such as parcels, intended uses, real estate units, etc… 
  • By selecting a node, you can open the attached detail photos during Walk-in/walk-out activities
  • All the data resulting from the activities are then exported to the digital twin, making them available to field instruments for walk-in, walk-out and building survey activities.

Benefits of the 3D4U Digital Twin

  • Improved Accuracy: Ensures precise network designs and layouts by providing a detailed, real-time digital replica.
  • Efficiency Gains: Streamlines network planning, building, and maintenance processes, reducing time and costs.
  • Enhanced Decision-Making: Provides network engineers and project managers with comprehensive, up-to-date information to make informed decisions.
  • Proactive Maintenance: Allows for predictive analysis and proactive maintenance, reducing downtime and improving network reliability.
  • Ease of Use: Simplifies complex network data into an accessible and interactive format, making it easier for users to manage and optimize the network.
