New virtual AI SUMMIT, focused on the Role and Impact of Artificial Intelligence Technology in the Telecommunications Industry, to be held the week of May 6, 2024; SIPNOC 2024, the 13th Annual SIP Network Operators Conference, will feature in-person proceedings September 17-19, 2024 in Herndon, VA
NORTH ANDOVER, MA (January 24, 2024) – The SIP Forum proudly announced today its event lineup for 2024, which includes a new virtual AI SUMMIT, a special webinar series focused on the role and impact of Artificial Intelligence technology in the Telecommunications Industry, to be held the week of May 6, 2024, and SIPNOC 2024, a three-day educational conference to be held on September 17-19, 2024 at the Hilton Washington Dulles Hotel in Herndon, VA.
SIPNOC 2024 will return once again to live, in-person proceedings, and continue and expand its focus on the broad Call and Text Authentication ecosystem, including STIR/SHAKEN, Call Analytics and Vetting, Branded Calling and Rich Call Data, International Traceback and STIR/SHAKEN adoption, KYC initiatives, Enterprise requirements and challenges, new SMS Text Authentication initiatives, associated Federal and State regulatory, legislative and enforcement actions, and much more.
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, the STIR/SHAKEN Call Authentication Framework 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.
AI SUMMIT and SIPNOC 2024 attendees will include telecommunications providers, major backbone operators, interconnect and wholesale solution providers, ISPs, ITSPs (Internet Telephony Service Providers), cable operators, hosted and managed services providers, wireless network operators, International PTTs, and large enterprises, as well as industry stakeholders in the Robocall/Robotext and Caller ID Spoofing elimination/mitigation ecosystem, including governmental regulators, enforcers and legislators; equipment manufacturers; customer care and contact center operators; application providers; data analytics firms; regulatory attorneys with State and Federal Jurisdictions; Device Integration Specialists; Service Assurance and IT/communication staff; digital watermark solutions providers; and AI-powered lead generation solutions providers.
“The SIP Forum is excited to be highlighting the opportunities and risks that AI poses to the telecommunications industry and users of communication services during our new virtual AI SUMMIT, as well as its role in the formulation of a comprehensive solution to eliminating illegal Robocall and Robotext fraud and spam,” said Marc Robins, SIP Forum President and Managing Director, and SIPNOC and AI SUMMIT Program Chair.
“We are also thrilled that we will once again be meeting live and in-person in September at SIPNOC 2024, where we will provide broad coverage of the requirements, challenges and the opportunities presented by the global effort to eliminate the scourge of telecom-based fraud and restore trust in communications,” added Robins. “We created SIPNOC to provide a unique meeting place for the international community of communications engineers and network operations professionals who deal with the real-world intricacies of providing communications services on a day-to-day basis, and with SIPNOC 2024 we will continue this vital tradition.”
