Vodafone Germany has called 2017 the "year of the Internet of Things" and said the company connected millions of devices and machines to its Internet of Things (IoT) network in 2017, bringing the total number to 62 million. Vodafone activated its new IoT network in Dusseldorf in December, and its IoT Narrowband network in Berlin is scheduled to go online in January 2018. The company expects that thirteen cities in Germany will be connected to its IoT network on LTE 800 frequencies by the end of 2018.
