Wednesday 20 September 2017 | 11:42 CET | News
ATIS and Neustar announced that testing of caller authentication standards in the US is well underway, with nineteen participants to date having signed on to test in the ATIS Robocalling Testbed. The industry interoperability testing is taking place through a virtualized testbed and software implementation at a facility hosted by the Neustar Trust Lab. The testbed was launched to support efforts of the Industry Robocall Strike Force set up at the prompting of the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to find solutions to the problem.
