Abstract: Small cell mesh wireless systems capable of high data rates seem likely to play a key role in the new proposed IEEE802.11ad based 5G networks. Key to these architectures will be antennas that can both support very wide bandwidths and at the same time deliver high gain performance whilst maintaining omnidirectional characteristics. Such attributes are often considered to be mutually exclusive or require steerable array techniques to accomplish. This design satisfies these requirements in a single device with a gain of 13dBi over a frequency range between 57GHz and 64GHz.
