Life-cycle management of sensors and service instances is made simple with Nornir Real Time Web technology. Vendors that make IoT products containing sensors, simply enroll the products and sensors on their website. When a user buys an IoT product, the ownership of the sensors in it is transferred to the user. From that point onward, the user has ownership of the sensors and can choose which services to include them in. Ownership of service instances can also be transferred likewise. Sensors and service instances can change ownership without disruption because ownership is preserved across services and networks. The Real Time Web propagates data from sensors via service instances according to policies defined by the owner of each respective object involved in the communication. Users that own things that contain sensors also own the data produced by these sensors. If this data could be useful to others, they may sell it on, effectively creating a market for their own data. The Real Time Web puts data ownership in the hands of sensor owners and intrinsically supports trading and licensing of sensor data.
