Bulk Solutions: Stir / Shaken

Written on Feb 10, 2021.


What is STIR/SHAKEN?

 
Spam and illegal robocalls are a significant problem many communications companies are struggling to deal with as they try to protect the privacy of their customers. In 2019, phone calls were the most common way scammers got in contact with their victims. 
 
The Federal Trade Commission has been working to educate the public about these unwanted calls, but with mixed success. 
 
However, a new communications solution has been developed to help combat the abuse. It’s called STIR/SHAKEN — a set of standards that can assist communication service providers in preventing unwanted and spoofed calls from connecting with their desired endpoint. 
 
How is Bulk Solutions Helping?
 
There are three Attestations.  A, B and C

Full or “A” Attestation: The Calling Number is ported to Bulk Solutions.

Partial or “B” Attestation: The Calling Number is NOT ported to Bulk Solutions, however, is a valid Telephone Number.

Gateway or “C” Attestation: Other, not limited to Invalid Telephone Numbers.

We have worked extensively with our upstream vendors on this solution, and we will always attest and categorize your outbound calls using Stir/Shaken whenever possible.

Please let us know if you have any questions.
 
Stay Safe!
