    Microwave photonics and radio-over-fiber (RoF) technologies have been investigated for over 20 years, leadingto a substantial stock of know-how which is now about to be exploited in the development of the 5th generationmobile systems (5G). These technologies have proven mature in niche areas such as distribution of highly pureclock signals for radio telescopes, photonic-based coherent radars, and fiber optic sensing, among others. This paper will show niches in where microwave photonics can add value by providing more compact, versatile andefficient system solutions. Furthermore, different efforts in the area of radio-over-fiber for communications willbe presented; particularly, remote access units for mobile backhauling or point-to-point wireless links driven by photonic technologies.
