solving problems, billions of connections at a time
Communication is our lifeblood. It’s what makes the world run and gives our lives meaning. Though technology evolves, the need to connect never changes. While technological advances make communications simpler and more ubiquitous, interconnecting it across the infrastructure and delivering it to the right person is enormously complex. Efficiently interconnecting disparate applications, networks and devices is critical in a world without boundaries. A world where accessing and exchanging information anywhere, anytime is simple, seamless and secure. That’s what iconectiv does better than anyone.

Computer code is the foundation for every piece of technology, including businesses and services. Add to that, many customers assume that if a software or firmware update comes from the vendor, it’s safe to install, creating a target attack surface for hackers and other bad actors. Michael Iwanoff, Chief Information Security Officer, gives three informative tips on how businesses can secure themselves to better their supply chains.
Selecting the Best Messaging Model for Your Business From Short Codes, Long Codes, and Toll-Free SMS Texts
The business messaging landscape constantly evolves as new technology advancements and innovative ways to engage customers disrupt the ecosystem. For businesses wanting to keep conversational commerce flowing while also engaging with customers cost-effectively and securely, it's essential to understand each messaging type and in which scenario they're most beneficial. In the latest Total Retail article, iconectiv’s Cliff Holsenbeck explores messaging models that will drive the future of business communication and what companies can do to adapt to these models.
Translation of telecommunication services to foreign lands may take some time to progress and evolve into a maintained functional system. This is the case with SHAKEN as its state-of-the-art blocking of traffic from voice service providers not listed in the Robocall Mitigation Database may lead to numbers from different countries to be seen as robocalls. In this panel at the STIR/SHAKEN Summit, experts from ATIS, Fierce Wireless, iconectiv, Microsoft and Twilio discussed what service providers must do to prepare for the FCC’s September 28 deadline.
With the rise of unwanted robocalls, ignored or blocked legitimate calls have a negative impact on U.S. companies and consumers. To solve this challenge, iconectiv in partnership with CTIA created Registered Caller™—the industry-backed centralized registry for verifying voice calls. Registered Caller ensures that business entities and the telephone numbers they use get vetted, registered and verified, helping prevent legitimate calls from getting blocked or flagged as spam. In this Network Media Group panel, experts from AT&T, CTIA and iconectiv explore how this helps maintain the integrity of one of our most vital methods of communication—voice calls—by providing voice service providers with a single source of truth for verified caller information.
A Successful Pilot: iconectiv, CTIA, Metaswitch and Verizon Address the Benefits of a Centralized Industry Registry for Verifying Voice Calls
Lack of caller verification is one of the largest problems that is causing individuals to not answer their phone. If they do not see who is calling them then they are less likely to pick up at all. With calls answered rates reaching the lowest it has ever been in a long time, it is to the upmost importance that proper authentication gets back into phone calls. Executives from CTIA, iconectiv, Metaswitch and Verizon covered a recent trial run of Registered Caller™ at the 2021 STIR/SHAKEN Summit and conversed about what it will offer to fix the declining answered rates.
Creating an illegal $1.82 billion industry, “Wangiri” fraud, also known as one-ring scam, targets unassuming victims by intentionally hanging up after one ring in the hope people call back—charging them at a premium rate. As part of Conecta Latam’s Telco Transformation Digital Summit and Virtual Expo, iconectiv’s Juan Carlos Ortiz, Principal for Corporate Business Development, will explore how iconectiv’s TruNumber Protect helps enable telephone companies enhance their call-blocking analytics to identify and prevent illegitimate calls before they reach customers.
