Cellular Records Analysis and Mapping – Updated 5th Edition




Now available on USB, Glenn Bard’s entire series of webinars on Cellular Records Analysis and Mapping. These five, 2-hour webinars were recorded June 14-July 19, 2018, and cover in detail the call detail records of the major cellular providers in the United States. 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. The updated 3rd edition includes coverage of significant changes to several major providers’ records which have occurred since the 2nd edition was recorded, as well as a demonstration of mapping for each provider’s records. Your USB will also include a special, 45-day PATCtech demo of D.A.R.T., a robust software utility that we love for mapping call detail records.
