According to a study analyzing over 50 million calls, the number of robocalls is dramatically increasing, from 3.7% of total calls in 2017 to 29.2% in 2018. And it’s projected to reach 44.6% by 2019. This article discusses the current solutions available to the consumers that are provided by telephone service providers to prevent robocalls. It also includes the newly adopted SHAKEN/STIR standard for caller ID identification by service providers. SHAKEN/STIR standard refers to the criteria of using public key infrastructure to authenticate the calls between the originating and terminat...
