Connecting devices to networks 

Currently, around 6.5 billion "things" are connected to the internet, but that's less than 1% of what has the potential to be connected. With 5G IoT, this is rapidly changing. This revolutionary communications technology is designed to enable IoT devices to connect with each other through cellular networks and the cloud.
