Is it fair to use jammers in prison

A long time ago, I wrote about the mobile phone in the Coimbatore Prison in India. Indian authorities refused to equip prisons with jammers, and prisoners used mobile devices such as smartphones almost free of charge. I think you will agree with me on this point, that leaving it is quite unfair and may even be dangerous. Imagine that criminals can operate by accessing the Internet, allowing them to make calls and send text messages. Detainees can make escape plans, coordinate other crimes from within the prison, and even organize riots in the prison. I decided to return to this topic,

According to Dawn’s newspaper, the Punjab Prison Department has begun to form a special guard that can handle modern weapons and war items. Their training courses include wireless signal jammers. They have been specially trained to prevent terrorist acts in Indian prisons, especially Punjab prisons. After 20 days of training, these militarized guards will be deployed in prisons in Punjab province because of the high risk of terrorism there.

News from Nabha prison in India has recently arrived. The jammers they installed interfered with the signals from all the facilities near the prison. To be precise, the entire bank was cut off. Therefore, the authorities were forced to call engineers to calculate the exact output power and location of the equipment to ensure that the prison was the only facility within the coverage area. This is why we need precise calculations and precision when dealing with cell phone blocking programs. What happens if these people block communications in nearby hospitals?

This is not the only problem caused by improper use of equipment that interferes with radio signals, including cell phone jammers. The situation in American prisons is also changing. According to Sacramento Bee, the two prisons in Texas will now have a “management access system” that only allows calls within the institution Approved phone number. But this is not the answer to the question! This “hosted access system” only solves part of the problem. What does it mean for Wi-Fi Internet access? He said nothing because the prisoners became more and more active when it came to phone smuggling.

The focus of the above article is-is it fair to use cell phone portable jammer in prison? I agree that criminals are not on vacation there and must strictly observe the criminal rules. But what is relevant to the guards is that they have no restrictions not only on the use of mobile phones, but also on the use of other wireless devices. And, what if there is an emergency? Directors will not be able to communicate with the outside world of the company and operate in both directions.

I ’m talking about an emergency, what if the wife of the caretaker now has a child and it ’s not even possible to call him! Or, a person from the employee ’s house caught fire and he could only be informed at the end of the shift due to improper use of signal jammers. It’s not really cool. So I see that using a global jammer is not the solution, we should try to use a small radius jammer. Their coverage area is approximately equal to the area of ​​the prison cell. Therefore, the guards are not in the coverage area, and the signals sent to their radios and mobile phones can be easily passed through.

So what will we get? Prisoners cannot use mobile devices because their signals are completely blocked, and guards can use wireless networks (radio, smartphones, etc.) as needed. Is n’t this the right solution for everyone? I may be wrong, but I think it will succeed. There has never been any problem. As we all know, in addition to simply answering calls and text messages, many smartphones also have wireless Internet connections. This can be a problem for jammers.

I explain now. By calling someone or sending a text message, we use standard GSM radio frequencies. In Europe and Asia, the GSM 900/1800 standard is very common. In the United States, Canada and Latin America, GSM 850/1900 is used. These standards cover the frequency band from 824 to 1990 MHz. Wi-Fi frequencies are completely different. When using a Wi-Fi connection, we run the 2.4 GHz or 2400-2483 MHz band. Therefore, the total frequency band to be scrambled is from 824 to 2483 MHz, which is a fairly wide range.

In addition to the wide range of frequencies to be blocked, the necessary jammer must also have a configurable output power to work in the designated area so as not to interfere with the communication or to interfere. To be honest, not every interferer can complete this task. But can provide solutions suitable for such specific tasks. Stay with us and give your opinion on the issue in the comment section below.
