The advent of new Internet applications and services has seen an increase in heterogeneity and complexity in service provisioning. These services require high-end non-network (storage and computing) resources interconnected by high capacity optical network. To support these services efficient coordination of optical network and non-network resources is required, which in turns requires accurate resource state information. To address this requirement a novel service oriented optical network architecture is introduced. Central to the proposed architecture is a novel service plane. The service plane orchestrates and facilitates interconnection of heterogeneous optical networks, non-network resources and clients. It utilizes a service oriented resource discovery platform that presents different abstraction models to facilitate resource state information discovery and dissemination. Finally, in this paper several novel resource abstraction models for the proposed service plane are presented and their performance is evaluated.
