MICO - Mobile Initiated Connection Only

MICO is a mode of operation for 5G devices. When a MICO activated device is in an Idle state, the 5G network will consider the device to be unreachable. The device will only receive MT (Mobile Terminated) data when it transitions to a Connected state. This transition to Connected whilst in MICO mode is always triggered by the mobile; the mobile will not be paged whilst in MICO mode.
