Channel Concept for licensing PI EDITION

Can anyone at SAP confirm me the "channel" concept from Licensing point of view, for SAP CLOUD PLATFORM INTEGRATION SERVICE PI EDITION?

Is any official SAP web page where it is described? Is it correct that channel referrs for end-to-end communication.

When SAP describes that a PI EDION Tenant is for 3 channels only, does it mean 3 end-to-end connections?

For instance, Companies connections to AEAT (Spanish Tax Authority) for SII (for VAT Tax information messages). One channel is for 1 Company at ERP to connect to AEAT?

(Compani-ERP <-> HCI PI EDITION <-> AEAT Webservice server) ?

I thought that ERP <-> HCI counted as 1 channel and HCI <-> AEAT counted as another one, but it seems I am wrong and the above paragraph is the correct one).

Thanks and best regards.

Hello Sergio,

As per my understanding 3 Connections means the 3 type of systems you want to connect from SAP HCI-PI.

It might be Ariba,C4C,ByD,ECC or anything.
