Wireless communication has emerged as one of the most buzzword field from the research point of view over the last few years. Explosive and increased growth of wireless technologies has resulted in increasing demand of better quality of service to the end users. Various cross layer design proposals of wireless networks are reviewed over the last decade. After analyzing various cross layer design proposals, researchers have come to know that cross layer design results in enhanced performance gains in wireless networks. Cross layer design proposal focus on both cellular communication as well as mobile ad-hoc network and involves various layers of the protocol stack. After a very long time, various novel views regarding the cross layer design are put in to single perspective effort.
