Actually Internet of Things (IoT) applications, from driverless cars, mobile devices, smart homes and smart cities are highly requested by the costumers, obliging telecommunication businesses operators established in countries to provide shortly this significant and inevitable technological leap forward. 5G is the technology that will enable these smart mobile devices to be well connected. These devices are becoming smaller, therefore and because to the high degree of miniaturization and an efficient wireless link, small antennas, which satisfies gain, resonance frequency, wideband, impedance, and low cost are demanded, which dimensions are enough small for be assembled into these kinds of mobile devices. This work proposes a wide bandwidth ranging from 3.1 GHz – 4.2 GHz Slotted Planar Microstrip Patch Antenna, applied to first trials and introduction of 5G services, describing the design, simulation, implementation, measurement and experimental results.
