Cell Site Analysis is a means of establishing the geographical location of a mobile phone when calls, SMS messages or data is sent or received.
With the prolific usage of mobile phones throughout the world, Cell Site Analysis has become critical within civil and criminal investigations. With many individuals carrying more than one mobile phone, being able to determine the movement and location of a handset, accurate to within a few meters, can be invaluable admissible evidence in court.
Evidence obtained from Cell Site Analysis can be combined with other evidence such as CCTV, call data records or observations. This can determine if the accused was in fact at the scene of the crime or to confirm an alibi. Alternatively, it can track the path of a mobile phone as it moves from location to location.
Using data from mobile phone service providers, our cell site experts can measure actual coverage utilising sophisticated data gathering, positioning and analytical tools. The information gathered is used to generate detailed coverage maps where the service areas of individual cell sites are shown as different colours.
