ABC 4 News Featured The Joint Collaboration Efforts Taking Place At Lee Correctional in South Carolina
Hanover, Maryland, September 4, 2018 – Tecore Networks, an innovator of mobile network infrastructure and the inventor of the Managed Access Solution (MAS), applauded the Cellular Telecommunications Industry Association (CTIA) which is bringing their proposed test-bed program to fruition. The idea came to light initially back in February during a meeting held by the Federal Communications Commission (FCC). This collaborative session was made up of the Commission, Wireless Trade Associations and Carriers, Correctional Leaders and Industry Experts.
“Managed Access has been a reality for a decade, but the validation this test bed program will bring to this technology and the standards at which Correctional Departments will use to select combative cellular interdiction solutions (CIS) in the future is a giant step forward,” said Jay Salkini – The Founder and CEO of Tecore Networks. “Director Stirling, and the State of South Carolina have been relentless in their quest to identify proactive responses to the growing epidemic. It’s great to see their advocacy efforts begin to pay off.”
South Carolina’s ABC 4 News Reported S.C. DOC testing new cell phone blocking technology at Lee Correctional Institution last week in response to the combined effort of the S.C. Department of Corrections and CTIA to test Managed Access to block contraband cell phones communications.
Managed Access is a highly innovative technology that controls cell phone usage in a targeted area, allowing authorized users to make calls while blocking those that are unauthorized. This solution is intelligent, when deployed in a prison, wardens, officers, doctors, and other government personnel, can be authorized to use their phones, while still preventing inmates from communicating through smuggled contraband phones or uncontrolled communications.
The solution operates through a precisely defined radio frequency (RF) umbrella deployed in a targeted operational area. Through the use of a main cell tower, cellular devices within the operational area are attracted and actively prevented from connecting to outside commercial network(s). The deployment of the technology requires a team of highly trained core network and radio frequency engineers, field support personnel and technicians to ensure the deployment is effective and accurate.
Ongoing cooperation with the local Commercial Carriers is key to the continued long-term success and to ensure cooperative deployments of any technology upgrades or adjustments. This eliminates the threat of holes in the bubble of coverage protecting the general public, corrections personnel, and other innocent parties from the threat of inmates continuing to conspire and perpetrate crimes from behind bars.
