TELUS (T) launches TELUS Global Connect, enabling TELUS customers to customize and manage IoT device connectivity on cellular networks around the globe.

This enhanced partnership complements TELUS’ tools, combined with TELUS’s anticipation of even greater market demand for cloud virtualization of services.
