Re: Not a wooden stake, either
We spoke last August; Gerry and Dawn have our contact information.

Related note: There have been a handful of news articles lately about the government shutdown allowing more robocalls.  This is not really the case.  Companies like ours rely on the DNC complaint database as just one source of many and it's current through 12/20.

Re: Not a wooden stake, either
Agree.  Full disclosure I'm with one of the leading solutions providers for consumers and cloud alike -  Call Control.   We've been asking for an extension of STIR/SHAKEN to the end client so that apps can use the data on the incoming call and provide return path feedback.

Re: Not a wooden stake, either
Good comments, and this one in particular, pretty much sums it up: " They will sell a dozen SIP trunks and what the client does with them they don't care "

In addition to STIR/SHAKEN 2.0, we believe there is a need for many technical approaches to solving the Unwanted Call problem. Here is an article the reviews and comments upon them: Identifying and Avoiding Unwanted Robocalls Requires a Wide Range of Technologies

Robocalls
Talking about robocalls, I think I have just read an article that might be useful for anyone at https://www.whycall.me/news/consumer-wins-massive-229500-robocall-lawsuit-against-time-warner-cable/. I think people should have been aware of how annoying these robocalls could be. They have ruined our privacy life since years ago.

Not a wooden stake, either
It would be remiss not to first acknowledge Carol's long respected career in the telecom industry.  My first industry mag was Telephony, and it instantly broadened my trade-view.  Later Carol interviewed and listened to briefs from my company(ies) over the years always with interest and professionalism.  Not that it was always easy, either!

To the standard, it will help the industry, and moreso regulators and enforcement agencies.  STIR/SHAKEN at least provides traceback for carrier to carrier when implemented, and then to subscriber IF (big) that is provided.  This will speed up and/or enable enforcement to some degree.  

Some carriers don't care.  They will sell a dozen SIP trunks and what the client does with them they don't care.  Runs their business on ten of the lines, runs abusive telemarketing or scams out of the other two. 

Three major components have to come toe for to be really effective: 1) every carrier has to implement the standard, worldwide 2) business processes for traceback in near real-time and 3) the delivery of the same authentication to the endpiont, beyond the terminating switch. Think STIR/SHAKEN 2.0
