network and integrated with NSO - Nodo Smistamento Ordini, which has the task
of transmitting to economic operators certified on the Peppol network an
electronic order sent by an Italian Public Administration via traditional
channels (PEC, FTP and WS9) to NSO, and deliver to the NSO itself the result of
the transmission to Peppol of the document received from the Access Point of
the recipient economic operator (Corner 3).
