I have been searching for technology behind how IMEI number can be utilized to get the location of a particular device. All I have gotten so far is some websites where we can enter our phone/IMEI numbers and get the locations etc.

But I want to know the actual technology that works behind all these things. Like how service providers locate the device and the technology and algorithms they use?

Thanks!
