Where are the missing 41 billion IoT devices?

Cisco predicted that 50 billion devices would be connected by 2020 and, despite the enthusiasm for IoT, we are still massively short of this with current estimates at around 9 billion. Research indicates that this is primarily due to IoT projects being more challenging than anticipated, with 60% of organisations saying they underestimated the complexity
