Both the US Government’s House of Representatives and the Senate recently approved respective dedicated anti-robocalling measures which if signed into law will make it easier for tougher penalties to be imposed on illegal robocallers and fraudsters. It will also demand carriers deploy call authentication technology at a much faster rate.

In this exclusive MEF briefing Chris Drake, CTO at iconectiv who are the nationwide policy administrator in the US on behalf of ATIS , explains the new ID authentication measures being established in the US: STIR/SHAKEN and examines the standards and solutions for mitigating unwanted robocalls, and particularly caller ID spoofing.

MEF Members can also download the slide deck from the briefing.
