As the Internet has become mainstream, so has Electronic commerce (EC) become an important part of conducting business. NSS facing EC will be a very important subsystem during the process of EC development. This paper introduces the current research situation about NSS, stresses on the whole system architecture and key technologies, sets forth solution scheme about some important problem, such as multiparty cooperation text technology and inter-stream synchronization. Our goal is to develop a NSS prototype and to test its feasibility in simulation environment. It also creates a user-friendly interface for Graphic User’s Interface (GUI). The implementation prototype system demonstrates excellent performance.
