In this paper, we propose a test derivation method suitable· for testing interoperability for the class of communication protocols like the ATMIB-ISDN signaling protocol. For this, we begin by defining the notion of interoperability test case. Next we select an effective interoperability test architecture by carefully comparing advantages and disadvantages of three candidate test architectures. Then we present an interoperability test suite derivation method based pn the definition of

In addition, occurrence orderings of output messages for all interoperability test cases are analyzed and their regularity is exploited to reduce the length of interoperability test cases.
