About Nivis

Company Background

Founded in 1998 and privately held, Nivis is the world leader in secure, standards based wireless sensing and control networks. The company has an innovative, differentiated product line with strong intellectual property protection and an efficient, flexible sourcing, production and delivery infrastructure. It has built strong relationships with more than 20 leading manufacturers of industrial and Smart Grid control and production systems globally, and now sell products in 27 countries.

The company’s product portfolio is comprised of standards-based wireless communications systems, including radio nodes, routers and management software, as well a complete software stack for native communications. We focus on two markets:

  • Smart Grid technology, which is expanding rapidly with the growth of the ‘Internet of Things’; and
  • Process Automation, in which low cost, secure wireless sensing devices are displacing wired devices.

As an early entrant with a significant technical investment, Nivis enjoys a strong market position. Our strategy from the beginning has been to support open standards or quasi-open standards. We are active in the standards bodies and are viewed as key experts in developing the leading standards in use today: ISA100.11a, WirelessHART, and Smart Object.

Nivis Smart Grid technology is now deployed in more than one million end point devices worldwide. We are well positioned for projected rapid growth as the Internet of Things expands and the ISA100.11a and WirelessHART standards penetrate the wired device market.
