Robocalls: Industry's Next Steps

July 13, 2017
2:00 p.m. ET

Presented by NTCA and SIP Forum


Our industry is well aware of the problem of robocalls and caller ID spoofing. Last year, the FCC convened an industry-led strike force on producing solutions to the problem. The strike force produced two reports for the FCC, the final one in April. Part of the proposed solution is a technology developed jointly by the SIP Forum, ATIS and the IETF called STIR/SHAKEN (Secure Telephony Identity Revisited/Signature-based Handling of Asserted information using toKENs) that would validate calls in the United States and ultimately display information to the consumer of the level of trust the network has in the call. This webinar will describe what that technology is, its impact in the call stream and possible regulatory actions the FCC may take in the very near future.
