Choosing a GDSN Data Pool Provider

Cloud Data Sync

For simplicity, let’s make the following comparisons:

GLN (Global Location Number) = Cell Phone Number

A GLN (Global Location Number) is required to publish/receive data via the GDSN (Global Data Synchronization Network). In a similar fashion, a cell phone number is required to dial/receive calls via the cellular network.

Data Pool Provider = Cell Phone Service Provider

A Data Pool Provider enables companies to publish/receive product data to/from the GDSN (Global Data Synchronization Network). In a similar fashion, Cell Phone Service Providers (Verizon, AT&T,T-Mobile, etc.) enable cell phones to make/ receive calls to/from other cell phones.
