Feature interaction occurs when one telecommunications feature modifies or subverts the operation of another one. Undesired feature interactions can lower service quality and delay service provisioning. The complexity of the feature interactions problem is expected to grow in the future with the provisioning of new multimedia, broadband and mobility services. Therefore, finding right solutions to the problem becomes imperative for vendors, network operators and service providers.
The book contains the proceedings of the Fifth International Workshop on Feature Interactions in Telecommunications and Software Systems. The Workshop addressed various important aspects of feature interactions and discussed different approaches to the problem, such as:
- Formal and heuristic methods for feature interaction detection
- Software engineering approaches to the feature interaction problem
- Feature interactions in emerging network architectures and systems
- Current industrial practice of feature interaction management.
