The insistence for clear communication and bandwidth continues to outstrip the capabilities of available technologies, though there is a rapid progress in the development of technology and telecommunications system. To fulfill these requirements and meet the challenges of telecommunications, a new type of hand-over mechanism based on cognitive networks called, inter network handover has been proposed. In this paper, a cognitive radio is used for the "Make before break" concept of handover. This does not require user intervention and the handover can be performed within the same network as well as in other networks.
