Keeping the voice ecosystem safe and attractive for consumers and business is an objective we all share. Fortunately, progress with STIR/SHAKEN, centralized caller verification via Registered Caller™ and the emergence of Rich Call Data is having a significant impact on the way we connect and communicate.

The 2022 SIPNOC Forum has concluded. This year, players from across the telecommunications and voice ecosystem shared new strategies and concepts to help strengthen STIR/SHAKEN deployment, regulation expansion and enforcement. You can view iconectiv’s insights on Global SHAKEN and Rich Call Data (RCD) on-demand here.

The first session during SIPNOC 2022, George Cray, Senior Vice President of Information Solution Products & Services at iconectiv, will join executives from ATIS, Microsoft and Bandwidth for the panel session, “SHAKEN Goes Global: Opportunities and Challenges for Service Providers and Regulators Worldwide.”

This panel will explore the need for a set of shared, technological best practices that extend across country borders to protect consumers from illegal and nuisance robocalls, including how brand identifiers, policy administrations, associations, regulators and service providers are turning unknown, legitimate callers into known and trusted entities.

During the second session, George Cray, Senior Vice President of Information Solutions, Products and Services at iconectiv, will be joined by executives from CTIA, T-Mobile and Verizon in the panel session, “Rich Call Data Best Practices: Building Trust for Future Success.”

This session will explore why combining Rich Call Data (RCD) with calling verification is an important step forward in combatting fraud and re-building consumer trust in communications, and how Registered Caller™, the industry-backed centralized telephone number registry, is foundational for powering trusted RCD by enabling pre-call telephone number and brand vetting and validation.
