Abstract: We present the architecture of novel framework for the composition and execution of web services, called platform for telecommunications (PlaTel). In this framework we consider ontology-based service description, service composition, communication link modelling as well as the application of ontology in the service discovery. We provide a unified approach to the ontological description of services and propose the use of upper level ontologies which have partially predefined structure covering all concepts used for functional description of services, QoS and communication modelling and domain-specific description of the services. Additionally, the PlaTel framework has several unique features which stem from the idea of addressing problems of service execution and composition by means of dedicated and configurable composite web services (the components of our framework).
