American consumers receive over 200K unwanted and/or fraudulent calls every minute, many using spoofed caller IDs to increase the likelihood that the called party will answer the call. Both the FCC in the USA, through the TRACED Act and the CRTC in Canada, have mandated service provider implementation of the STIR/SHAKEN set of standards as a solution to the widespread use of CLI spoofing in fraudulent calls.
Guaranteed Caller™ is NetNumber’s family of STIR/SHAKEN solutions, providing proactive and IETF/ATIS compliant CLI validation solutions for all common calling scenarios.
Guaranteed Caller™ Service Provider is using credentials and certificates from the national level to sign and verify consumer calls within an operator network. It fully meets all current FCC/CRTC mandates for IP STIR/SHAKEN. Includes STI-AS, STI-VS (with included CRc certificate cache), SP-KMS, SKS and STI-CR. An optional CVT capability is available.
Guaranteed Caller Service Provider provides three unique functional sets:
The Guaranteed CallerTM family is fully compliant with all relevant IETF/ATIS standards for STIR/SHAKEN.
FIPS 140-2 Level 1, Level 2 Compliant
All key-related elements of Guaranteed CallerTM are FIPS 140-2 Level 1 compliant. Level 2 compliance is an available option.
Fully Cloud Native, Containerized Implementation
Guaranteed CallerTM is fully cloud native and containerized, providing effectively unlimited capacity via a highly elastic dynamic scaling capability.
Support for TDM-SHAKEN
Guaranteed CallerTM Service Provider includes full support for TDM-SHAKEN. The in-network Cloud Connect node optionally supports TDM/SS7 physical interfaces.
Configurable Selection of Calls to be Signed
Not all calls need to be signed to be known free from CLI spoofing. Unnecessary call signing may equate to unnecessary OPEX. The Guaranteed CallerTM in-network Cloud Connect node provides configurable call signing selection rules, saving service providers unnecessary spend by selecting for signature only those calls that need to be signed.
Configurable Call Attestation Rules
STIR/SHAKEN relies on accurate call attestation. The Guaranteed CallerTM in-network Cloud Connect node provides configurable rules for setting attestation levels, ensuring that this critical value is set in compliance with local network policy.
Configurable OrigID Values
The STIR/SHAKEN OrigID value supports traceback of calls that incorrectly received an “A” attestation. The Guaranteed CallerTM in-network Cloud Connect node provides configurable rules for setting OrigID as local network policy dictates.
