Detect and block Robocalls and reduce annoyance calls
REDCOM Personalized Call Screening (PCS) is an ultra-flexible, highly customizable solution for screening incoming calls. Provide your subscribers with privacy by eliminating those annoying calls that use a computerized autodialer to deliver pre-recorded messages (robocalls). Personalize the treatment for screened calls to ensure wanted calls are delivered, while unwanted calls are blocked.
REDCOM PCS incorporates STIR/SHAKEN (Secure Telephony Identity Revisited / Secure Handling of Asserted Information using toKENs), a digital certificate system that leverages public key cryptography processes to verify that calling numbers are accurate and not spoofed.
The process underlying STIR/SHAKEN has been in use on the Internet for years, providing token authentication for secure websites, minimizing the spoofing of internet addresses by bad actors. Recent government, service provider, and enterprise security experts have deemed STIR/SHAKEN a necessary process for reducing the impact of bad actors on the telephone network. As legislation begins to rollout addressing robocalls, a STIR/SHAKEN solution will likely be mandated.
