Sponsored by Businesswire

Please replace the release dated December 2, 2020 with the following corrected version due to multiple revisions.

The updated release reads:


iconectiv experts join AT&T, CTIA, Lumen and Verizon thought leaders for two thought-provoking sessions

How can the STIR/SHAKEN framework be leveraged to help increase call-answer rates for legitimate businesses? What additional information do service providers need to give business calls the highest level of attestation? This will be a key topic of discussion at SIPNOC 2020, where iconectiv experts will join other industry leaders to provide actionable advice and best practices for enabling the highest level of caller verification and supporting the security of the next-generation of communications technology.


As a policy administrator for the Calling Number Verification Service and a provider of trusted communications solutions, iconectiv—a Diamond sponsor at SIPNOC 2020—will participate in two sessions during this year’s virtual event.



In the first session, experts from iconectiv, AT&T, Verizon, CTIA and Lumen Technologies will discuss what service providers and businesses need to do to ensure that legitimate calls are properly verified and achieve the correct level of attestation.



The second session will be a presentation on omnichannel verification and how this will be increasingly critical for protecting brands and the lucrative conversational commerce domain.




As the communications landscape undergoes seismic shifts, new technologies have revolutionized the way businesses and consumers connect and engage with one another. At the same time, this has given rise to unforeseen challenges, with verification becoming more important across all communication channels: voice, text messages and Rich Communication Services (RCS) chatbots.
