The 4G/5G/fast growing world wireless technology plays a vital role as wired connections nowhere using because of its installation complexity. Wireless accessing of networks, wireless services, and IoT controlling are the current trend in technology for providing quickness, easiness, mobility, feasibility, and/or flexibility. Apart from that, other merits include wireless networks that can dynamically from the network in the real world and it is easy deployment than wired. Wireless protocols such as Bluetooth (IEEE 802.15.1), ZigBee (IEEE 802.15.4), Wi-Fi (Wireless Fidelity) (IEEE 802.11), and Z-Wave (proprietary-based standard) are widely used technologies, and Wi-Fi SON (Wi-Fi Self-organizing/Optimizing network) is a newly raising technology. Wi-Fi SON is an automated intelligent network. In this research paper, we are describing the wireless technologies importance, features, working, and comparison among them and mainly focused on Self-organizing/Optimization Networks (SONs); one such network is Wi-Fi SON.
