At the Heart of the Matter: The 5G Core

I had the opportunity earlier this month to speak at the virtual 5G Forum. My chosen topic was no small matter—the challenges and requirements of securing 5G signaling networks. With our digital lives, not only our data but our finances and even our health will depend on the security of 5G networks.

Not Every Call can be an “A” Call: The Importance of Assigning Correct Attestation

Attestation is a critical element of STIR/SHAKEN, the FCC mandate that on June 30th, 2021 kicks off a whole new era in telecommunications. Intending to restore confidence in phone calls, service providers sending or routing calls throughout the United States must be STIR/SHAKEN compliant or not only face serious financial penalties but also automatic rejection of calls that have not gone through either STIR/SHAKEN attestation or at least Robocall Mitigation.

TDM SHAKEN and Attestation

In this short blog series, we have seen that the STIR/SHAKEN architecture requires service providers to implement a minimum of five, and potentially up to seven, new network functions/elements to achieve compliance with the FCC requirements. Stated simply, STIR/SHAKEN compliance can be complex, resource intensive and expensive.

What is needed is a way to simplify a service provider’s path to compliance. NetNumber bridges the chasm with Guaranteed Caller™, a family of standard compliant STIR/SHAKEN solutions designed with one overriding objective in mind – simplifying the
service provider journey from today’s state to full STIR/SHAKEN compliance.
