Major US carriers meet June deadline for deploying anti-robocalls system

Thursday 1 July 2021 | 10:43 CET | News
The largest voice service providers in the US have implemented the STIR/SHAKEN caller ID authentication standards in their IP networks, in time for the deadline set by the FCC, the regulator confirmed. The protocol is designed to protect consumers from the high number of malicious spoofed robocalls in the US, so calls with unverified numbers are not put through and law enforcement officials can track marketing scams.
