FCC’s STIR/SHAKEN Standards Now In Effect for Small Providers

All IP-based voice service providers are now required to adopt the caller ID authentication framework adopted by the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) in 2021 to reduce the incidence of spoofed robocalls.

In a press release, the U.S. Federal Communications Commission (FCC) reminded gateway and facilities-based small service providers of the June 30, 2023 deadline to implement the requirements of the Commission’s STIR/SHAKEN standards (the acronyms stand for Secure Telephone Identity Revisited (STIR) and Signature-based Handling of Assorted information using toKENS (SHAKEN)).

The STIR/SHAKEN standards provide a common digital language that can be used by phone networks to pass valid information from provider to provider, thereby helping individual service providers strengthen their own blocking tools to reduce the incidence of unwanted calls. The largest U.S.-based voice service providers were required to adopt the STIR SHAKEN standards as of June 30, 2021.

Radiated emissions testing is the measurement of the electromagnetic field of the emissions that are unintentionally being generated by the equipment under test.

“While there is no single cure-all when it comes to robocalls, having this technology in our networks is real progress,” noted FCC Chair Jessica Rosenworcel in the press release. “We will continue to push forward with this and every other tool we have to fight these junk calls.”
