Internet of Things (IoT) primarily based application requires integration with the wireless communication technology to make the application data with ease available. In this paper, a modified 12 mm x 16 mm x 1.6 mm micro strip patch antenna has been proposed for IoT applications at 2.4 Giga Hertz (GHz) in the Industrial Scientific and Medical (ISM) band. This wideband antenna is designed using Flame Retardant4 (FR4) material as the substrate. The multiband operating characteristics have been achieved by radiating strips to the 50 feed line. Proposed wideband antenna covers frequencies ranging from 1.8 GHz to 3 GHz and 5.3 GHz to 6.9 GHz for -10 dB return loss. The results are analyzed and discuss in term of return loss, Voltage Standing Wave Ratio (VSWR), efficiency and gain. The proposed design has a maximum losses of -31.59 dB at 2.4 GHz and -16.94 dB at 6 GHz. The developed antenna can be useful for several wireless communication applications, such as 2.4 GHz Bluetooth, Wireless Local-Area Network (WLAN) (2.4/5.8 GHz), Worldwide Interoperability for Microwave Access (WiMAX) (5.5 GHz), ISM band and IoT applications.
