June 30, 2021 marked the deadline for all voice service providers to certify in the Robocall Mitigation Database the status of their STIR/SHAKEN implementation and/or institution of a Robocall Mitigation Plan, but what’s happened since June 30? And what was the significance of the September 28th deadline?
Numeracle Founder & CEO, Rebekah Johnson, joins Telecom Reseller’s Doug Greene to discuss the Numeracle STIR/SHAKEN Implementation Report, comparing the count of voice service providers who have fully or partially implemented STIR/SHAKEN to those who have filed Robocall Mitigation Plans and how this shapes providers’ decisions to accept or block traffic post- September 28.
With providers complying with the STIR/SHAKEN framework and Robocall Mitigation Database requirements thus far, Rebekah and Doug discuss how the FCC has shifted its focus to look more globally. Their Fourth and Fifth Further Notices of Proposed Rulemaking place additional focus on gateway providers that are the point of entry for foreign calls into the United States. Thoughts on the enforceability of the Robocall Mitigation Database have come into question, and the FCC is seeking clarity on how it addresses foreign voice traffic into U.S. networks.
