Abstract The migration to IPV6 from the IPv4 protocol has enabled direct communication among millions of devices leading to internet of things (IoT). In the near future, the devices would exchange data and control information among themselves over the 5G network. The devices are likely to be used as a part of the sensors that transfer data in real time and equipped with less resources for computation, memory and power. The tutorial illustrates the design of IoT connectivity over 5g considering these parameters. Data transfer from an IoT device over a wireless channel suffers with various issues that become severe if not handled at the design stage. The algorithms to handle the same would be discussed. In the remotely connected devices to 5G network, it is difficult to replace the power supply (batteries) frequently. It calls for local harvesting of the power. The mechanism would be illustrated with examples. The architecture provided here details the optimization involving the data transfer (communication overhead) and the in-place computation (battery life). As much data is required to be acquired from the sensor as it gets processed. It involves prioritization constraints put on the underlying 5G network. Overall, the connectivity issues with IoT over 5g networks would be detailed.
