Berkeley Varitronics Systems Inc. (BVS) is exhibiting at ISC Solutions, in booth 1062, its family of cell phone detection and location products. They include Wolfhound and Wolfhound-Lite for cell phone detection and the Yellowjacket bang Tablet analyzer for Wifi Direction Finding of unauthorized users.


The issue of contraband cell phones in correctional facilities is becoming a major issue for prison officials. According to the U.S. Department of Commerce’s National Telecommunications and Information Administration, the use of contraband cell phones by inmates has risen as the U.S. prison population continues to expand. For example, during 2006 California correctional officers seized approximately 261 cell phones in the state’s prisons and camps; by October 2009, that number had risen to 4,130.


A further application of the products is in campus and testing environments where cell phones can be used to share or store access to unauthorized information.


The Wolfhound-Lite allows correctional facilities to enforce an affordable “no cell phone use” policy, because each security officer could potentially be equipped with a cell phone detecting watchdog.
