Title: A high abstraction level approach for detecting feature interactions between telecommunication services

Authors: Zohair Chentouf, Ahmed Khoumsi

Abstract: When several telecommunication services are running at the same time, undesirable behaviors may arise, which are commonly called feature interactions. Several methods have been developed for detecting and resolving feature interactions. However, most of these methods are based on detailed models of services, which make them suffer from state space explosion. Moreover, different telecommunication operators cannot cooperate to manage feature interactions by exchanging detailed service models because this violates the confidentiality principle. Our work is a part of the few attempts to develop feature interaction detection methods targeting to avoid or reduce significantly state space explosion. In order to reach this objective, we first develop a so called Cause Restrict language to model subscribers of telecommunication services at a very high abstraction level. A Cause Restrict model of a subscriber provides information such as: what is the cause of what, and what restricts (or forbids) what, and specifies coarsely the frequency of each operation cause or restrict by always or sometimes. Then, we develop a method that detects feature interactions between telecommunication services modeled in the Cause Restrict language. We demonstrate the applicability of our approach by modeling several services and detecting several feature interactions between them. New feature interactions have been detected by our approach.
