Systems of Systems (SoS) are collections of autonomous systems that share their resources in order to form a new larger system with more capabilities and enhanced performance. A fundamental challenge of service identification in SoS arises when constituent systems are dynamically composed. This paper proposes a new framework for SoS service identification and allocation based on MPLS technology.
