Milli-meter wave (MMW) carrier with high bandwidth availability and license-free features will help to develop 5G and 6G networks, which is a National importance of every country. Milli-meter frequency band is the key parameter of 5G, 6G and beyond technology to attain high capacity and speed to the users in wireless domain. To transmit this data (traveling on radio frequencies) over fiber for fronthauling (FH), it is required to modulate the light signal first with respect to the data present in analog domain. Milli-meter wave over fiber is the technology whereby light is modulated by a milli-meter frequency signal and transmitted over an optical fiber link. Main technical advantages of using fiber optical links are lower transmission losses and reduced sensitivity to noise and electromagnetic interference compared to all-electrical signal transmission. Following is the scope of this A&T Topical Review.

1. Issues and Potential role of optical networks in 5G and beyond
2. Technology issues of implementing millimeter and sub-THz wave over fiber
3. High capacity transmission for Fronthauling
4. Issues in Next generation Passive Optical Networks Stage 1 and Stage 2 for Fronthauling
5. Resource allocation in millimeter wave over fiber for the improvement in performance
6. Hybrid Fiber and Wireless network and All-optical security in 5G and 6G network
