Mobile phone jammer prevents vehicle theft

Theft of freight vehicles in Mexico has increased in recent years. However, according to CANACAR data, we have reached extreme numbers, from 2016 to 2017, an increase of 70% and historical significance. guilty? cell phone jammer or blocker.

A mobile phone signal jammer is a wave-generating device that can block different communication signals and frequencies, such as GPRS, Wifi, 3G, 4G, etc. This technology is very useful for preventing unnecessary communication in prisons, banks, large events, or very sensitive spaces (laboratories, conference rooms). However, if they fall into the wrong hands, they are more likely to commit crimes. For example, they are used by organized crime to promote vehicle theft.

In fact, satellite tracking systems mainly operate via cellular communication (GPRS). Using a mobile phone signal jammer will turn off the tracking system, so the device cannot be tracked in flight.

In Mexico, from 2016 to 2017, the number of thefts and thefts of goods transported by cars increased by 70%, while the recycling rate dropped sharply. On the other hand, it is believed that in 65% of cases, cell phone jammers are a key factor in the attacker’s success.

What makes cell phone jammers so effective in stealing goods from cars is response time and clearance conditions. In order to understand this, let us consider what happens when a criminal uses a jammer for theft: when the criminal activates his jammer, the device will stop positioning on the GPS tracking system. However, if the monitoring technology is not sufficient, it may take tens of minutes for the monitoring personnel to realize the incident.

Once the signal loss is detected, the usual practice is to run the initiation flight verification protocol, which may vary from company to company. If the theft is proven, it is time to seek help from the authorities to retrieve the unit. Unfortunately, the Mexican police structure tainted by bureaucracy and corruption does not always allow rapid response. The criminals here are saving precious time.
