Two Ribbon solutions completed interoperability testing to protect users against unwanted calls

Under the framework of the MWC19, the company announced that its Session Border Controllers (SBC) 5000 Series, 7000 and SWe, as well as its policy and routing software solutions (PSX) completed the STIR-Shake tests. This initiative of the Internet Engineering Task Force and ATIS (Alliance for Telecommunications Industry Solutions) aims to protect consumers against unwanted calls made by robotic systems and Caller ID Spoofing (calls in which the information transmitted to the identifier or caller ID is falsified to hide the identity of the person who makes it).

On this point, Patrick Joggerst, CMO and VP of Business Development of Ribbon, considered that certification is important as it is expected that more countries, concerned about privacy of users, implement obligations similar to those established by the Federal Communications Commission ( FCC) of the United States.

In dialogue with Convergencialatina, the executive also announced that Ribbon will continue with the strategy of acquisitions of companies during the next year. At early February the purchase of Anova Data was known, focused on the maching learning applied to wireless communications. The acquisition will allow Ribbon to expand its Ribbon Protect portfolio in the mobile network environment.

Currently, Anova's solutions are used by operators in the United States to identify consumption patterns of users that hire both communications and multimedia services, among others.
