Globally many researchers have been showcasing immense attention to the latest sophisticated technology of the ever-evolving future generation in the field of communication in wireless cellular technology. The day to day growth in the usage of mobile data increases the pressure on the demand for a faster communication system. Therefore, the objective is to satiate the emergent needs for high data rates which is on the rise. The introduction of new fifth generation (5G) technology has pledged to be more advantageous for the welfare of the world hence creating a crucial distinction over the fourth generation. The layout of fifth generation millimeter (mm) wave antenna provides wide bandwidth which is important in determining the performance of 5G networks. This paper talks about a dual side-plated mm wave antenna which can be used in 5G networks. The antenna discussed in this paper is etched on the substrate, RO4003c which has a thickness of 1.5 mm and a dielectric constant (ϵr) of 3.38 with loss tangent, 0.0012. The antenna provides a gain of 7.38 dBi with S11 return loss of-19.19 dB at the frequency 28 GHz. It also covers a wide bandwidth of 6.5 GHz which can be used for future applications.
