TransNexus SHAKEN solutions at BroadSoft Connections

Production-ready software solutions for secure caller ID with STIR/SHAKEN

ATLANTA, Georgia, November 8, 2018 — TransNexus today announced that they will have STIR/SHAKEN software solutions available for demonstration and discussion at BroadSoft Connections, a unified communications industry event hosted by Cisco BroadSoft on November 12–15 in Hollywood FL.

These solutions enable BroadSoft users to quickly deploy production-ready software that provides authentication and verification of caller ID to give telephone subscribers relief from unwanted robocalls.

Recent STIR/SHAKEN news

On November 5, 2018, Federal Communications Commission (FCC) Chairman Pai issued a demand that telecom service providers deploy STIR/SHAKEN solutions as quickly as possible.

“Combating illegal robocalls is our top consumer priority at the FCC”, said Pai. “That’s why we need call authentication to become a reality—it’s the best way to ensure that consumers can answer their phones with confidence.”

Pai thanked the providers who have begun implementation of STIR/SHAKEN, and he asked those providers that apparently have not made concrete plans to deploy STIR/SHAKEN to do so without delay.

“If it does not appear that this system is on track to get up and running next year, then we will take action to make sure that it does,” said Pai.

On January 25, 2018, the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) issued compliance and enforcement decision CRTC 2018-32, which states that Canadian telecommunications service providers should implement STIR/SHAKEN by no later than March 31, 2019. The CRTC Interconnection Steering Committee (CISC) is working on a report due December 14, 2018 on proposed industry-wide call traceback process.

TransNexus solutions are production-ready now

TransNexus has developed STIR/SHAKEN functionality in its NexOSS and ClearIP software products. The software has completed ATIS testing and is ready-to-go.

TransNexus and BroadSoft

TransNexus has a long history of developing telecom software solutions that work well with BroadSoft implementations and have been deployed widely with BroadSoft customers. These solutions can leverage specific BroadSoft features and capabilities, such as policies and controls by service providers, groups and users. Examples include:

  • Flexible blacklists, including call forwarding blacklists
  • Traffic reports and analytics by user-specified date ranges
  • SHAKEN identity policies
  • Advanced telecom fraud prevention for traffic pumping, theft of service, call forwarding and call transfer attacks.

Any of these can be provisioned at the service provider, group and user level, in addition to other segmentation capabilities.

For information, discussion, or a demonstration, TransNexus representatives will be available at booth 12 in the exhibit hall during exhibit hours and can be reached using the Cisco Events conference application or on the TransNexus website.
