MEF Briefing | Combating Robocalling: ID authentication SHAKEN/STIR Briefing

To combat illegal calls and protect legitimate calls, in the US the telecommunications industry is rallying across operators, their vendors, the FCC and several U.S. legislators to propose a multi-faceted approach to validate consumer and business calls by requiring voice calls to have confirmed caller identification through certificate verification and analytics.

The US House of Representatives has approved an anti-robocalling measure, the  Stopping Bad Robocalls Act, which if it becomes law, will make it easier for the US government to impose tougher penalties on illegal robocallers and fraudsters and demand that carriers deploy call authentication tech at a faster pace.

MEF Member Iconectiv is the Policy Administrator for the Caller ID authentication standards known as SHAKEN/STIR on behalf of ATIS (Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions). Their CTO Chris Drake gives an exclusive briefing about this major advancement in industry efforts to mitigate unwanted robocalls and caller ID spoofing.

Expected to be implemented this year, this briefing explores call blocking requirements including the SHAKEN/STIR standards and the new attestation process, how this impacts businesses, and what companies need to do now to make sure their calls become answered again.

In addition to offering much needed relief to consumers who are fed up with scam and spam calls, this initiative will result in a process change for those businesses who are making legitimate calls and want to make sure the consumer can make an informed decision to answer the call.

Find out what it means for you, in this exclusive MEF briefing.
