Frequently Asked Questions

The HIVE Collective is a next-generation Domain Name System (DNS) and peer-to-peer (p2p) networking technology that simplifies integration among IoT providers and service providers. The HIVE Collective can significantly reduce your costs and time to market. With an HIVE domain, you can integrate and communicate with anyone without the need for middleware or server deployment. There are no API or code libraries required to establish connections with other vendors. Furthermore, the HIVE Collective does not store any data, so privacy and security concerns are drastically reduced when building your own complex value chain.

Nornir provides access to a wide array of IoT and equipment providers, with the majority of them registered on our tender platform, IOTNITE.com. Additionally, we offer customized development of IoT devices upon request. One notable example of such a request is the Nordberg Guiding system—an autonomous heating system designed for remotely controlling heat pipes within buildings. Through our maintenance application, users can conveniently adjust the temperature within buildings and seamlessly connect it to an AI service, enabling energy purchases during low-cost periods.

Nornir has been engaged in many use cases, and I encourage you to reach out to one of our sales representatives for further information tailored to your specific area of interest. You may also find informative articles in the news section highlighting the accomplishments and deliverables achieved by Nornir.

One of the primary advantages of utilizing the HIVE Collective network is the non-persistence of data and the absence of intermediaries that store data during active communication. This inherently enhances network security by making it more challenging to hack or attack while affording us greater control over the network. As operators, Nornir’s daily responsibilities include securing and maintaining the network as a service. We firmly believe in staying abreast of the latest security threats and employing top-tier talent to ensure that our customers can focus their time and efforts on their businesses.

We have the capability to support all existing, present, and future IoT technologies. Currently, our support includes LoRaWAN, Dash7, Disruptive Technologies, NB-IoT, WiFi, 4G/5G, and Zigbee. If you wish to integrate your own proprietary protocol, we can configure the HIVE to accommodate it, allowing you to seamlessly transfer data between equipment using other IoT technologies.

Integration is achieved through the use of links. This is accomplished by establishing a connection between your domain and service URL, whereby the HIVE DNS system will automatically route data peer-to-peer between the two systems. Context and data transformation are facilitated through the utilization of semantic web topology.

For each domain established within the network, we engage with the domain owner to ascertain their expected data traffic and the number of IoT devices they anticipate. Subsequently, we add this to the network in the form of edge servers that provide more resources to existing infrastructure. Furthermore, we maintain healthy profit margins to facilitate sustainable growth and consistently monitor data traffic as part of our service to customers. Scaling is unrestricted, The network works like the World Wide Web by adding and mapping IP addresses with new domain names.

The HIVE Collective network enables you to select and integrate with the best analytics provider available in the market. Because integrating with IoT providers is both straightforward and highly cost-effective compared to traditional API methods, you have the flexibility to change vendors whenever you wish.

The cost structure is determined by data traffic and the hardware maintenance required by the network at any given moment. We continuously collaborate with our partners (IoT Providers) and aim to offer their solutions/services as part of comprehensive package deals. Pricing and models are negotiated on a per-use-case basis, taking into account each party’s contributions. In the case of maintaining complex infrastructure such as physical gateways and sensor installations, a nominal fee is calculated based on the costs associated with infrastructure maintenance.
