Abstract – The ever increasing capabilities of wireless devices has made us feel the need of efficient and optimized use of the capabilities of the devices. It is beyond the ability of user and operator to optimally configure the complexity of the modern wireless devices and network, only viable solution available is to include the intelligence or self-optimization within the network itself . Cognitive Networks seek to find the solution of this problem by embedding the greater degree of intelligence with the increasing capabilities of wireless devices.

Key Words – Cognitive process, reasoning, and learning, dynamic spectrum access, SAN, MAS, AI etc.
