The identification of viable scenarios for analyzing and simulating future network services is considered a key requirement for identifying their potential economic success. In this paper, we describe a requirements classification concept for interconnection services with assured service quality (ASQ) which allows to objectively describe IC challenges (i. e., technical and economical realization efforts) in a use-case independent manner with respect to technological and economical constraints. For this purpose, a meta-scenario framework is proposed abstracting use-case scenarios by classifying their requirements arising from network configurations. This concept allows an abstract view on ASQ goods requirements, which is the precursor of the random generation of meta-scenarios. Altogether, the proposed framework is intended to reduce redundancies in scenario-based analysis in order to support the efficient development of new network concepts.
