Cellebrite UFED System:
Universal Forensic Extraction Device
The Cellebrite UFED Forensics system is the ultimate standalone device which can be used in the field as well as the forensic lab.
The Cellebrite UFED can extract vital data such as phonebook, pictures, videos, text messages, call logs, ESN and IMEI information
from over 3200 models of handsets sold worldwide. The UFED supports CDMA, GSM, IDEN, and TDMA technologies, and it is compatible with any
wireless carrier. The Cellebrite UFED system supports 95% of all cellular phones in the market today, including Smartphones and PDA
devices. (Palm OS, Microsoft, Blackberry, Symbian) It requires no PC for field use, and can easily store hundreds of phonebooks
and content items onto an SD card or USB flash drive.
The Cellebrite UFED supports all known cellular device interfaces, including serial, USB, infrared, and bluetooth. It can then be
brought back to the forensic lab for review and verification using the reporting/analysis tool. Field extraction of data insures
that a suspect's phone can be examined before the individual has a chance to destroy or erase data. By working exclusively with
most major carriers worldwide including Verizon Wireless, AT&T, Sprint/ Nextel, T-Mobile UK, Orange France, Telstra Australia as
well as 50 others in the US alone, Cellebrite ensures that future devices are supported prior to retail launch.
