As we all know, Robocalls, Telemarketers, and other nuisance calls continue to be the number one source of complaints at the FCC, FTC, CRTC, various European regulators, Australia’s ACMA and I’m sure several others globally.
Recently, both the FCC and CRTC have put in place regulatory mandates for Carriers to address this problem. Specifically, the implementation of STIR/SHAKEN has become strongly recommended/required to address the problem of un-trusted call originators.
In the scramble to address the regulatory mandates, carriers need to understand and balance:
• The technical hurdles introduced
• The behavior this will (or will not) force on the average consumer
• The impacts to the premium subscribers (enterprises, hospitals)
• The overall architecture of the network
In this webinar, we will review the standard’s definition of STIR/SHAKEN (i.e.: the IMS reference architecture). We will also look at the bigger picture of nuisance call mitigation, both with respect to the pending extensions to the standards and in general protection of the telecommunications users.
We will also discuss the expected evolution of the standards – and the mandates. We will look at the problems addressed with STIR/SHAKEN and the remaining pitfalls to continue to handle.Register
