The explosion of mobile devices around the world provides a unique opportunity for Law Enforcement Agencies to partner with Mobile Network Operators and more effectively combat crime by leveraging mobile location intelligence.

However, Law Enforcement Agencies cannot depend upon device-based technology (e.g. GPS, apps) as they can be inconsistent, unreliable, disabled or tampered with by the user. What is required is the ability to determine the location of mobile users without relying on them or their devices.

Creativity Software is a global leader in mobile network location intelligence. Our Location Intelligence solution “CS LocationWise” is a high accuracy Location-Based Services (LBS) platform that is deployed on mobile networks, supporting 2G to 5G networks. The solution provides real-time, historical and mass location intelligence, without relying on the device. CS LocationWise delivers against the highest and strictest accuracy requirements in the world – for instance in Colombia, with a consistent and audited 50 metre network location accuracy.

CS Locationwise

A Non-Intrusive Solution Delivering Real-time,
Historical, and Mass Location Intelligence

CS LocationWise integrates with 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G core and radio networks to provide location estimates of up to 50 metre accuracy – even in dense urban environments, indoors or outdoors, anywhere in-country or overseas. This is the highest network location accuracy available worldwide.

Our solution is non-intrusive and works for any mobile device, on any network technology (2G, 3G, 4G, 5G) and their MVNOs, at any time, using the device and SIM identifications (MSISDN, IMSI or IMEI) to locate targets. It provides the following:

  • A visual map-based user interface “CS TrackWise” that allows easy set-up of multiple targets
  • Real-time visual tracking, geo-fencing, alerting and analytics features
  • Historical view of the target location information over a specified period
  • Location data whenever a device is switched on, without the knowledge or permission of the target as nothing needs to be installed on the device

CS LocationWise is a location-based services platform that encompasses the Gateway Mobile Location Center (GMLC), Serving Mobile Location Center (SMLC) and Bulk (Passive) nodes for 2G, 3G, 4G and 5G networks. Our platform is a standards-based software solution that extracts data from the network and uses highly precise algorithms to locate all mobile phones, with patented CS algorithms to significantly improve accuracy.

CS LocationWise supports encrypted data and ensures that the data is duly secure. It also offers unparalleled flexibility. It is deployed on the mobile network and can be accessed by multiple authorised Law Enforcement Agencies. It can also be deployed for single mobile networks or be centrally deployed to cover all service providers in a country.
