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).
