Special Free-to-Attend Webinar Series takes place March 21-25, 2022; Continues laser focus on issues vital to the deployment and operation of the STIR/SHAKEN Call Authentication Framework and the ongoing efforts to combat illegal Robocalls and Caller ID Spoofing
The SIP Forum is proud to announce that the official agenda and webinar registrations are now live for SIPNOC 2022, a special webinar series focusing on the challenges and opportunities related to the deployment and operations of the STIR/SHAKEN Call Authentication Framework.
The SIP Forum is also very proud to report that due to overwhelming sponsor support, SIPNOC 2022 will be free to attend! Current event sponsors include Diamond Sponsor Neustar; Platinum Sponsors iconectiv and Numeracle; Gold Sponsors Comcast, ECG, Hiya, Metaswitch, and YouMail; Silver Sponsors First Orion, Ribbon Communications and Telnyx; and Association Sponsors ATIS, Cloud Communications Alliance (CCA), CTIA, NTCA – The Rural Broadband Association, and USTelecom.
Like the SIP Forum’s July 2021 STIR/SHAKEN VIRTUAL SUMMIT, SIPNOC 2022 will be a virtual event consisting of a special series of webinars presented by the experts leading the development of the STIR/SHAKEN Call Authentication Framework, leading companies providing STIR/SHAKEN solutions and deployment expertise, and key representatives from government regulatory and enforcement agencies.
Developed jointly by the SIP Forum and ATIS (the Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions) to efficiently implement the Internet Engineering Task Force’s (IETF) STIR (for Secure Telephony Identity Revisited) standard, SHAKEN (for Signature-based Handling of Asserted information using toKENs) defines a mechanism to verify the calling number and specifies how it will be transported across communications networks.
Together, STIR/SHAKEN offers a practical mechanism to provide verified information about the calling party as well as the origin of the call — what is known as “attestation” — for the first time in the network. Giving service providers the tools needed to sign and verify calling numbers makes it possible for businesses and consumers to know, before answering, that the calls they receive are from legitimate parties.
SIPNOC 2022 will feature a series of webinars that focus on issues critical to the reliable and successful International deployment and operation of STIR/SHAKEN in today’s IP-based network environments, as well as associated topics including discussion of the ramifications of governmental regulatory, legislative and enforcement actions and critical security issues.

About the SIP Forum
The SIP Forum is a leading IP communications industry association that engages in numerous activities that promote and advance SIP-based technology, such as the development of industry recommendations; interoperability testing events including SIPit, and special workshops, educational activities, and general promotion of IP communications standards, services, and technology for service provider, enterprise and governmental applications. The SIP Forum is also the producer of the annual SIPNOC conferences (for SIP Network Operators Conference), focused on the technical requirements of the service provider community, and other industry events. One of the Forum’s technical activities is the development of the SIPconnect Technical Recommendation – a standards-based SIP trunking recommendation that provides detailed guidelines for direct IP peering and interoperability between IP PBXs and SIP-based service provider networks, and the SIPconnect Certification Testing Program, a unique certification testing program that includes a certification test suite and test platform, and an associated “SIPconnect Certified” logo program that provides an official “seal of certification” for companies products and services that have officially achieved conformance with the SIPconnect specification. Other important Forum initiatives include work in security, SIP and IPv6, and IP-based Network-to-Network Interconnection (IP-NNI) and the SHAKEN Call Authentication Framework.
