The invention of protocols was to foster communication between computer systems, in such a way that users are no longer limited to have access to single type network, although support many features. Multi-vendor computer environment is a fact and to cope with the information exchange difficulties a need is required to standardized communicating protocols. The concept of assuring interoperability is getting more importance as information technology evolves. In this paper we try to focus on interoperability definitions and applicable ways of measuring it.
