Abstract: In this paper the performance analysis of a multibeam antenna is presented. Now a days applications need different operating frequency antennas in single substrate. Multibeam antenna is capable of transmitting and receiving signals in all direction. Multibeam antenna is constructed using multiple array pattern. Each array is operating at different frequency. The frequency of [2.4-2.5] GHz for Wi-Fi and[5.3-5.7]GHz for WLAN. We designed the multibeam antenna for two different application. Design of multibeam antenna improves the directivity of the antenna. A directivity of 9.263 dBi is achieved which is a very high value.
