Antenna Design for 4-Sector Node in WLAN Applications
Abstract— This paper introduces an antenna design which is compatible with 4-sector node in WLAN
systems. The designed antenna operating in 2.4-GHz band provides 90-degree beamwidth for each sector and
also a high front-to-back ratio so that the interference between beams can be avoided. The proposed antenna
is low of complexity as it can be fabricated on a single-layer FR4.
Index Terms— Patch antenna, Sector node, WLAN; Front-to-back ratio.
