RI 198 Forensic Box | Ranatec

Gothenburg, Sweden, September 27, 2021 Ranatec, a part of the Qamcom group and supplier of specialized test and measurement equipment for RF and microwave applications, today announced its latest innovation, the RI 198 Forensic Box designed for law enforcement, IT forensics and crime investigators.

The RI 198 enables users to analyze signal jammers or protect wireless devices that have been collected at a crime scene. The box is portable, easy to use and features a flexible lid that remains open at any angle and closed without any additional locking device.

Example of application use:

  • Protect wireless devices (from criminals) from being hacked remotely (wireless), and to analyse these devices.
  • The devices can be mobile phones and laptops, but also signal jammers that criminals use to jam wireless connections during a crime.

“With the RI 198, Ranatec once hits the mark on delivering benchmark RF shielding technology, says Magnus Kilian, CEO, Ranatec. This RF shielding technology is based on sought after telecom products we have delivered over past 10 years. RF shield boxes based on this unique technology are in use (in the hundreds) at some of the leading telecom companies in the world.”
