SHAKEN for TDM podcast

In this audio podcast, Andrew Ward and Alec Fenichel discuss the two new standards that enable using SHAKEN with calls that transit TDM segments along their call path. These standards enable much broader, widespread use of SHAKEN call authentication to help combat illegal robocalls.

There’s something in this podcast for everyone, from a simple overview of what these methods do, to a discussion of typical questions that listeners with deep technical knowledge may have.
