The Green Wireless Communication (GWC) is relatively productive and an emergent communication field in modern-day technology. This research critically analyzes the GWC via cognitive handover, including an analysis of relevant literature works on spectrum transmission reliability, efficiency, utility of services, and data rating. Research exertions assert that the green wireless communication and the relevant application, energy adeptness have a significant impact on the environment. When formulating any technological initiatives, the ecological aspect should be considered to be a critical priority. The green energy stimulated by the cognitive radio network has the capabilities of liberating communication access network frameworks from energy and spectral constraints. Spectrum limitations alleviate through the exploitation of cognitive radio networks, which is due the sense of wireless nodes and utilization of spare spectrum for communication of data. The green wireless communication via cognitive radio enhances the availability of networks, hence extending emergent wireless applications. The designing of green cognitive radio networks is exigent since it necessitates an optimization of the spectrum access and the optimal utility of the green network. This research also analyzes the green telecommunication networks by reflecting on the media transmission systems. With the application of networking cooperation in spectrum network, this research presents a case scenario of an energy wireless communication that utilizes cognitive radio.
