A bi-layered, dual-band microstrip antenna for high gain Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication environment is presented in this paper. This antenna covers WiMAX (3.3-3.7 GHz) and WLAN (4.9-5.1 GHz) bands. The radiating patch is printed on Rogers RT/ Duroid 5880 substrate. A partial ground plane is used to enhance the bandwidth of antenna. A Partial Reflecting Surface (PRS) layer is employed below the antenna layer in order to enhance the gain and bandwidth of the antenna. More importantly, the proposed PRS employed antenna provides gain enhancement of 4.3 dB and 4.4 dB at WiMAX and WLAN bands respectively. Simulated and measured results make this arrangement a potential candidate for high gain Machine-to-Machine (M2M) communication.
