Special Webinar Session

Integrating TDM into STIR/SHAKEN and An Overall Identity Assurance Framework

Sponsored by

Simply put, integrating TDM into the industry’s adoption of STIR/SHAKEN is a challenge.  In fact, for most service providers the lack of a TDM solution impacts their ability to gain the full benefits of STIR/SHAKEN.  As designed, STIR/SHAKEN works well for IP-based call control and network interconnection, but if calls need to transit a TDM network for interconnection, transit a TDM switch within a network, or terminate on a TDM switch, STIR/SHAKEN does not work.

Multiple efforts are underway to define solutions that address this challenge and several alternatives have been proposed, but none have reached a consensus approval for widespread adoption and deployment.  Ribbon believes there is still room for innovative thinking to address the integration of TDM with STIR/SHAKEN and invites you to attend this webinar to hear about a proposal which takes advantage of capabilities already available in TDM switches and SS7 networks.

Using STIR/SHAKEN to verify caller identity is a critical component of an overall identity assurance framework and being able integrate TDM is vitally important.  But STIR/SHAKEN can be complemented with other analytic methods and technologies to keep up with increasingly sophisticated robocall and fraud threat vectors.  Ribbon believes that TDM can also be integrated with an identity assurance framework and will provide a proposal how that would work as well.

Additional webinar information:

  • Get the details on how to enable the transfer of STIR/SHAKEN verified attestation over TDM using ISUP
  • See how to support STIR/SHAKEN use cases for TDM interconnect or for TDM switch termination
  • Hear how the Ribbon proposal ensures backward traceability
  • Learn why this proposal incurs very little cost to implement
  • See how the use of AIN triggers, in terminating TDM switches, enables the ability to request call verification treatment from an identity assurance solution
  • Learn more about how Ribbon’s complete identity assurance solution to ensure you can restore your customer’s trust in the phone
