Robocalling next-generation Caller ID authentication Takes on with STIR/SHAKEN Solution

Atlanta, GA – February 26, 2020 – One of the first service providers to adopt and use the STIR/SHAKEN technology to help combat robocalling is also helping ensure that legitimate calls are not being mistakenly flagged as “Spam Likely” or “Telemarketing.”

Americans received over 58 billion robocalls in 2019, according to YouMail, and the numbers are increasing year over year.

NUSO now has STIR/SHAKEN authentication across its entire network, from its core infrastructure to PBXCloud and Communications Platform as a Service (CPaaS) offerings.

The FCC estimates that the “wasted” time and nuisance caused by scam robocalls exceeds $3B each year. To combat this, Congress passed the  TRACED (Telephone Robocall Abuse Criminal Enforcement and Deterrence) Act which provides the FCC with new tools to fight unwanted, and often illegal, robocalls, the top consumer complaint reported to the FCC annually.

A robocall is any call generated by a machine, usually done in high volume, which can deliver either a recorded message or a live person on the line. There are many legitimate forms of this, such as appointment reminders from a healthcare provider, important messages from your city government, severe weather alerts, etc.

Many times, call scammers will spoof their caller ID, and use robocalling tactics to mass-produce telephone calls and make it appear as if the call is coming from a legitimate business so that they may trick unsuspecting consumers.

NUSO is following the FCC mandate by implementing STIR/SHAKEN

Along with adding additional layers of Robocall Mitigation to go above and beyond the FCC requirements in combatting unwanted calls. The additional Robocall Mitigation solution works alongside STIR/SHAKEN to identify unauthorized and suspicious use of phone numbers and detect trends and anomalies in calling patterns.
