The evolution of IT and network technologies has generated far-reaching opportunities for complex service innovation in future Internet. This has resulted in an increase in the heterogeneity and complexity in service provisioning. Such complex services demand efficient coordination of distributed IT resources (storage and computing) interconnected by high capacity optical networks. This paper proposes a service plane architecture as an architectural enhancement promising to handle these complexities. It implements a unified service provisioning concept that can adapt to the heterogeneous, dynamic and complex nature of emerging service requirements as well as optical network and IT resource capabilities. The main elements of the proposed architecture consist of information discovery and service discovery that require a semantic modelling framework to address heterogeneity and automation. This paper introduces the novel semantic modelling framework, which is used for information description in a service-oriented environment based on Web Services Modelling Ontology (WSMO). The framework describes the information model and entities needed to communicate requirements for autonomous, homogeneous service discovery, selection and composition.
