The paper presents an example of an optical RRH (Remote Radio Head) design, which is equipped with photonic components for direct connection to an all-optical network. The features that can be fulfilled by an all-optical network are indicated to support future 5G mobile networks. The demand for optical bandwidth in fronthaul/midhaul distribution network links, working in D-RoF and A-RoF formats was performed. The increase in demand is due to the very large traffic generated by the Optical Massive-MIMO RRH/RRU will work in format of an Active-Distributed Antenna System (A-DAS). An exemplary next-generation mobile network that will utilize O-RRH and an all-optical backbone is presented. All components of presented network will work in the Centralized/Cloud Radio Access Network (C-RAN) architecture, which is achievable by control with the use of the OpenFlow (OF).
