Even though technology has been a boon for the world, there are many instances when it has led to problems. But, it is not the technology itself, but the people who use it make it a boon or a bane. When used to connect with the loved ones or carry out tasks vital to one’s life, then technology makes it much easier and gets it done within minutes. But, there are also times when the technology is used by criminals to make threats to people or to hurt others. It is the time when the technology needs to be compressed or put away from the reach of those people. In prisons, the use of technology is banned. All inmates are barred from using any means of communications from the outside world. While most people think that just telling them this thing will work, most of the time it is not what happens.
Prisons have long banned anything other than the necessities for the inmates. But, they often find a way to smuggle different luxuries into the prison. Among the many items smuggled inside the prison, the top two are drugs and cell phones. These two are then used by gangs to create a gang within the walls of the prison and then carry out different activities that allow them to make money even while they are locked up. Even though prisons have tight securities, there are some ways in which these items are smuggled inside, and the only way to stop it is by using technology that would prevent them from using the cell phones. Securus Technologies have already identified this problem and have created a solution for this with the name of Wireless Containment System. The new system is already being tested and has shown excellent results that have sent a shockwave across the country.
Securus Technologies is known to provide communications services to hundreds of prisons and correctional facilities across the state. Over the years, they are also spending millions on building technology to help prevent the use of cell phones inside the prison. While it is not possible to conduct a thorough search for all the cells since it can be quite dangerous for the correctional officers, they have devised a technology that would prevent anyone with an illegal phone to make calls from inside the prison. Wireless Containment System is a closed system that has a network of its own. All calls have to connect to this network before they are connected to the commercial ones. Also, this system has been proved to be fool-proof, and the company has been updating the system regularly to ensure that the criminals are unable to hack it in any way.
