Types of EDI Value Added Networks

1. One-to-One

The one-to-one network is a connection between two businesses exchanging data.

2. One-to-Many

A single business connected to multiple other businesses, e.g., a major retailer connected to its different suppliers.

3. Many-to-Many

Multiple businesses connected to one another. This is the most common type of network used in the financial markets since there are many market participants connected to each other via a single venue.

An EDI VAN receives mail from a sender, sorts, and delivers it to the recipient's mailbox. A trading partner retrieves messages by connecting to the VAN, which validates the message and verifies the recipient's identity. It then provides a full audit trail, and all messages are tracked and accurately recorded

An EDI VAN is a provider of data connectivity as a service over an outsourced network. VANs enable rather simple EDI setup and the communication and exchange of standard-based EDI events and documents by decreasing the number of involved stakeholders
