Strategizing to Mitigate the Misuse of Telecom Networks

Shaping the future of trusted communications and a debate about upcoming technologies and trends await visitors at ITEXPO 2020, which takes place February 11-14 in Ft. Lauderdale, Florida. Experts from iconectiv will be taking the stage, focusing on strategies for the reduction of robo-driven spam calling and the best ways to maximize the potential of VoIP.

Spam calls with spoofed caller IDs have reached unprecedented levels in the U.S.—to the point where many people simply refuse to answer their phones. These calls are easily the biggest segment of consumer complaints to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC) and the number continues to climb, with billions of robocalls reported every month. Helping to restore trust in communications is a key priority for the industry as a whole—as well as a critical focus for iconectiv.

Consumers pick up the phone when they have trusted information about the businesses calling them

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.
