All-Optical Networks (AONs) are emerging as a promising technology for very high data rate communications, flexible switching and broadband application support. They contain only optical components and vary to a large extent from traditionally optical networks. Due to this specific variation, AONs have unique features and requirements in terms of security and Quality of Service (QoS) that require a very targeted approach in terms of network management. This paper discusses management issues and
