GTL releases reliable means of eliminating cell phones in correctional facilities

Global Tel*Link (GTL) has deployed Mobile IQ, a new proprietary strategy designed to decrease the use of contraband cell phones in correctional facilities across the United States, the company said.

Each year, thousands of contraband phones are seized from within the secure perimeter of facilities, posing a threat to the safety and security of offenders, facilities and staff.

Mobile IQ is a three-pronged layered approach for addressing the problem of illegal phones. It focuses on 1) Detection, 2) Extraction and 3) Analysis or (DEA), providing a better alternative to Managed Access Solutions (MAS).
