FAQs

Q?

What is the Internet of Everything?

A.

The Internet of Everything is the intelligent connection of people, process, data and things.

Q?

Why is the Internet of Everything important?

A.

The Internet of Everything brings together people, process, data and things to make networked connections more relevant and valuable than ever before - turning information into actions that create new capabilities, richer experiences and unprecedented economic opportunity for businesses, individuals and countries.

Q?

How does the Internet of Everything relate to the Internet of Things?

A.

The “Internet of Everything” builds on the foundation of the "Internet of Things" by adding network intelligence that allows convergence, orchestration and visibility across previously disparate systems.

Q?

Why is the Internet of Everything happening now?

A.

The explosion of new connections joining the Internet of Everything is driven by the development of IP-enabled devices, the increase in global broadband availability and the advent of IPv6.

Q?

What are the elements of the Internet of Everything?

A.

People: People will continue to connect through devices, like smartphones, PCs and tablets, as well as through social networks, such as Facebook and LinkedIn. As the Internet of Everything emerges, the interaction of people on the Internet will evolve.

Process: This includes evolving technology, business, organizational and other processes that will be needed in order to manage and, to a large extent, automate the explosive growth in connections—and the resultant accumulation, analysis and communication of data—that will be inevitable in the Internet of Everything. Processes will also play an important role in how each of these entities—people, data, and things—interact with each other within the Internet of Everything to deliver societal benefits and economic value.

Things: This element includes many physical items like sensors, meters, actuators, and other types of devices that can be attached to any object, that are or will be capable of connecting to the network and sharing information. These things will sense and deliver more data, respond to control inputs, and provide more information to help people and machines make decisions. Examples of “things” in the Internet of Everything include smart meters that communicate energy consumption, assembly line robots that automate factory floor operations, and smart transportation systems that adapt to traffic conditions.

Data: Today, devices typically gather data and stream it over the Internet to a central source, where it is analyzed and processed. Such data is expected to surpass today’s largest social media data set by another order of magnitude. Much of this data has very transient value. In fact, its value vanishes almost as quickly as it is created. As a result, not all generated data can be or should be stored. As the capabilities of things connected to the Internet continue to advance, they will become more intelligent and overcome the limits of traditional batch-oriented data analysis by combining data into more useful information. Rather than just reporting raw data, connected things will soon send higher-level information and insights back to machines, computers, and people in real time for further evaluation and decision making. The intelligent network touches everything—and is the only place where it’s possible to build the scalable intelligence required to meet and utilize this new wave of ‘data in motion’. This transformation made possible by the emergence of the Internet of Everything is important because it will enable faster, more intelligent decision making by both people and machines, as well as more effective control over our environment.

Q?

Who is HIVE?

A.

Hive Technology is a technology innovation & consulting business, head-quartered in Dubai, UAE with regional offices located in Ireland and South Africa.

Hive Technology was established with the foresight that in a connected world, single identification of all objects and people will become a major constraint.  The company thus set out to develop a totally secure wireless technology that enables single identification across multiple applications, known as Hive One ID.

Q?

What is Single Identification Technology?

A.

Hive One ID is the first single identification technology available. Single identification technology can be defined as a technology with the ability to provide a secure identification for people, objects and animals that can operate across functional, organisational and application boundaries. This technology is ideal suited to create key and cardless societies.

Q?

What is Hive One ID?

A.

Hive One ID can operate independent or enhance existing technologies with a single identification capability. Ensuring seamless integration of various technologies into an integrated smart solutions environment, ideally suited for National and Local Government Initiatives. This technology can provide every person on the planet with ‘one’ unique identity applicable across multiple applications such as; national identification, banking and loyalty, healthcare, hospitality, home and office automation and more. Creating an integrated keyless and cardless smart society.

Q?

How does Hive One ID receive information?

A.

In most cases the Hive One ID only receive configuration information. Once configured it might never be updated again. Certain applications will however update data on the One ID on a regular basis. The Hive One ID can be configured through using a USB docking station or can be updated or programmed wirelessly. Additional update methods is currently under development.

Q?

How does Hive One ID transmit information?

A.

Hive One ID utilizes international free band frequencies to transmit pre-programmed data configured on the Hive One ID to any Hive Reader. Hive One ID's transmit data on regular time intervals or on a specific sensor trigger.

Q?

How is Hive One ID different from RFID?

A.

Short for radio frequency identification, RFID is a technology similar in theory to bar code identification. With RFID, the electromagnetic or electrostatic coupling in the RF portion of the electromagnetic spectrum is used to transmit the identification number.

Hive One ID is a new patented broadcasting beacon technology that transmit a string of data on regular intervals or under certain sensed conditions. The Hive One ID can be configured to provide different data under different conditions. The Hive One ID is totally secure with a unique encryption per One ID. The One ID cannot be copied or replicated like other electronic identifications technologies.

The Hive One ID instructs any Hive Reader in range where to transfer the data too, enabling identification across functional, organisational and application boundaries.
