Nowadays, open-source Voice over IP (VoIP) software makes it easy to spoof calls with minimal experience and cost. Therefore, customers receive large volumes of unsolicited and unwelcome marketing calls. Telephone service providers are facing the issue of maintaining calling confidence with their customers.
STIR/SHAKEN enables telephone service providers to authenticate and verify caller identities to mitigate call ID spoofing through a certificate-based technology that uses private and public keys to identify the source of a call.
The Italtel STIR/SHAKEN solution is designed to achieve tangible benefits in the security process of voice and video networks. It represents a compelling answer to the STIR/SHAKEN adoption required by the telecommunication regulatory agencies in several Countries. The interfaces towards the authority centralized servers are defined by each Country and the Italtel platform can provide a tailored solution adapting such interfaces to any regulatory requirements.
Network evolution can rely on the flexibility of the Italtel solution that can be deployed in multi-purpose Data Center, NFV infrastructures or private/public cloud (e.g., AWS, Azure cloud). The absence of tighten requirements of the hosting infrastructure allows an easy and future-proof approach. Furthermore, the integration of the powerful routing capabilities with the STI functionalities allows a flexible configurable solution adaptable in any context.
Finally, the Italtel STIR/SHAKEN solution is compliant with the standards developed by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and the Alliance of Telecommunications Industry Solutions (ATIS).
