Currently, over 75% of calls are left unanswered when the call comes from an unidentified or unfamiliar number. This is due to the spike in illegal robocalls, which reached 85 billion globally in 2018 – a 325% jump from 2017. The new ATIS-SIP Forum Signature-based Handling of Asserted information using toKENs (SHAKEN) framework will help mitigate illegal robocalls so that consumers can once again trust the calling number displayed on their caller ID.
