In this study, we introduce a 3D micro-cell simulator for radio wave propagation analysis in indoor environments. Previous studies treat only the path loss between the transmitter and receiver in 2D geometry. We provide the simulation results of indoor propagation prediction based on various ITU-R Recommendations. Simulation results described here indicate that the low and high frequency bands give quite different characteristics in presented indoor geometry. The propagation loss as a function of distance has two distinct regions. It is similar to that occurring in free space within 5-20m of the transmitter, however, increases significantly as the electromagnetic waves become obstructed by the walls at distances further away in the next region.
