The evolution of centralized radio access networks is discussed from a pragmatic perspective, taking into account the network and radio requirements. The use of wavelength-division multiplexing technology to support this evolution is proposed, and the opportunities for network operators in terms of operational cost, energy efficiency, reuse of already deployed infrastructures, and network convergence are discussed.
