In this webinar series the viewer will be introduced to the different types of cellular records available from the most popular wireless service providers in America. Each session covers a different wireless network, and the specific types of data held by that network. Additionally, the viewer will be supplied with search warrant language specific for each network and an example from each of the networks covered. Topics covered include Lucent® vs Nortel® towers, Operational vs Optimal Beam Width, Non typical tower sectors, First and Last cell sites, RTT / PCMD / NELOS, Burner apps, VOIP, and many other topics. In short this series identifies what is available on each network, retention periods, the wording needed to get the records, and how to interpret the data.
