Cell Site Analysis
TEL: 01732 459 811
Cell Site Analysis is the geographical locating of a mobile phone, or data device, using Call Data Records sourced from a Mobile Network Operator. The records include cell site location data, which is recorded against individual phone calls, text messages and during GPRS (data) sessions.
The data can be used to determine the possibility, or otherwise, of a mobile phone having been in the vicinity of a location of interest (a scene of crime, for example) – perhaps including travel to / from the location – or to assist in confirming or disproving an alibi for an individual, to whom the mobile is being attributed.
