Abstract: The main objective of any antenna design in the rapid growing wireless communication sector are in terms of speed, bandwidth, energy efficient and vast data handling capabilities[1]. Here in this paper we propose an antenna array system design with 8×8 geometry (64 patches) which is capable of working in millimeter wave (mm wave) with high data rate and less power consumption[2]. The antenna is designed to operate in the frequency range of 28 GHz to 28.6 GHz. The bandwidth obtained in the antenna is of 600 MHz range. The maximum gain obtained in the array is 20.7 dB. The main drawback of millimeter wave communication is its short distance communication capability. So it will be the perfect candidate for smart city applications since the area coverage will not be that large but with increased demand in data rate, which can be perfectly addressed by millimeter wave communication antenna.
