Network evolution towards self-aware autonomous adaptive networking aims at reducing the burden of configuring and managing networks, which leads to performance degradation. In order to optimize network operations, the introduction of self-awareness, self-management, and self-healing into the network was proposed, leading to a novel paradigm in networking -known as cognitive networking. This paper surveys the state-of-the-art, in cognitive networking -identifying fundamental techniques and

Following an overview of existing methods for crosslayer signaling, the paper identifies the most appropriate approaches to be used for cognitive network implementation outlining advantages, drawbacks, and provides guidance for usage of each signaling method.
