FCC deadline for STIR/SHAKEN compliance for the small voice service provider is changed to June 30, 2021
FCC (Federal Communications Commission) announced last month that the deadline for the adaptation of STIR/SHAKE for small voice service providers with 100k or fewer subscriber lines was moved to June 30, 2022. The same compliances for the large service providers remain the same and are set to the end of this month, June 30, 2021.
FCC had set this STIR/SHAKEN framework requirement to service providers to reduce the spoofed robocalls currently prevalent in the US. With this additional framework of interconnected standards, the call recipient’s phone company can verify whether the call originated from the number displayed on the caller ID.
Brekeke had added STIR/SHAKEN supports to Brekeke SIP Server to meet this compliance. Brekeke SIP Server can act as both STI-AS (STI-Authentication server) and STI-VS (STI-Verification server), which provides significant advantages of simpler integration and administration.
