I am writing this reference in my .tex file

\begin{thebibliography}
\bibitem{Thomas} Thomas, V. A., El-Hajjar, M.,  Hanzo, L.: Performance improvement and cost reduction techniques for radio over fiber communications.IEEE Communications Surveys \& Tutorials. {\boldm $17$}(2), 627-670(2015).

When I see the generated file it comes like this:

expected to form the mainstay of the future fifth generation of wireless networks [1]

instead of [1] I need (Thomas).

I just run over similar situation. If your reference is just Thomas (also works with spaces, but unfortunately not with commas (yet)), you could define the bibliography with:

\usepackage{natbib}
\bibliographystyle{abbrvnat}
\setcitestyle{authoryear,open={(},close={)}}

(see https://de.overleaf.com/learn/latex/Natbib_citation_styles)

Then your bibitem should look like that:

\bibitem[Thomas]{Thomas} Thomas, V. A., El-Hajjar, M.,  Hanzo, L.: Performance improvement and cost reduction techniques for radio over fiber communications.IEEE Communications Surveys \& Tutorials. {\boldm $17$}(2), 627-670(2015).
