9th Annual SIPNOC conference to focus exclusively on STIR/SHAKEN and Robocall Mitigation and Elimination; provides a unique opportunity for information exchange among network operators and engineers seeking to deploy STIR/SHAKEN and explore best-practices for their networks and services
NORTH ANDOVER, MA (September 12 , 2019) – The SIP Forum has announced its conference agenda for the ninth annual SIP Network Operators Conference (SIPNOC 2019), to be held December 3-5, 2019 at the Hilton Washington Dulles Hotel in Herndon, VA. The three-day event will feature presentations and panels from leading communications industry professionals and the experts responsible for the development of the STIR/SHAKEN Framework – the leading technical specification designed to eliminate the scourge of Robocalls and Caller ID Spoofing – in a cooperative environment aimed at sharing information and best practices regarding the deployment of STIR/SHAKEN in carrier networks.
The SIP Forum, together with the Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS), formed the Network to Network Interface (NNI) Joint Task Force to address unwanted and illegal Robocalls and Caller ID Spoofing, and develop standards to verify and authenticate caller identification for calls using the Session Initiation Protocol (SIP). The outcome of this effort has been the SHAKEN Call Authentication Framework.
“The unique agenda at SIPNOC 2019 will be 100% focused on STIR/SHAKEN and the expanding efforts to combat the Robocall and Caller ID Spoofing epidemic,” said Marc Robins, SIP Forum President and Chair of the SIPNOC Program Committee. “As the co-developer of the SHAKEN Framework, the SIP Forum has produced a world-class agenda specifically developed for industry stakeholders in the Robocall elimination/mitigation ecosystem, including service providers seeking to deploy STIR/SHAKEN, governmental regulators and agencies, equipment manufacturers, enterprise and government agency contact centers, and application providers and data analytics firms.”
Important, associated domestic and international regulatory issues will also be on the SIPNOC 2019 agenda, as the United States Federal Communications Commission and the Canadian Radio-Television and Telecommunications Commission have both endorsed the SHAKEN standard. In addition, SIPNOC 2019 will also explore the ramifications of a number of legislative actions taking place in the United States Congress.
