Reliable phone records (CDR) analysis, in correlation with digital evidence

Today everyone has at least one device. It means a daily increasing amount of telecommunication exchanges, namely a valuable source of analysis for digital experts.

In particular:

  • The device and the content (IMEI, IMSI, messages, photos, positions etc.)
  • Cell Site Analysis – CSA (Call Detail Record, Historical Cell Site Location Information)

What is a CDR?

CDR (Call Detail Record) is a file, produced by the cellular providers (the carriers), containing information about telephone exchanges (e.g. calls). The record contains various attributes such as the date, time, duration, completion status, source number and destination number, amount of data transmitted or received, accordingly to the requested period.
