ATIS Robocalling Testbed

Welcome to the ATIS Robocalling Testbed and all the resources that you will need to participate! We appreciate your patience as additional information and required resources will continue to be added throughout the upcoming weeks.

The ATIS Robocalling Testbed, hosted by the Neustar Trust Lab, serves as the industry interoperability test facility to validate the effectiveness of caller authentication standards developed by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF) and ATIS. Specifically, ATIS developed “Signature-based Handling of Asserted information using toKENs” (SHAKEN) as an implementation framework for service providers to better combat robocalls and call spoofing on IP-based networks.

The Neustar Trust Lab serves as the virtual industry testbed for communications service providers, equipment manufacturers and software suppliers to test solutions developed for the SHAKEN framework. Participants in the testbed collaborate to test against applicable ATIS standards. The Neustar Trust Lab provides technical support for the relevant connectivity information, representative network configuration and supported test scenarios amongst participants. The virtual test environment removes testing obstacles and will accelerate the validation of caller authentication standards.

Any service provider with an assigned Operating Company Number (OCN), as maintained by the National Exchange Carrier Association, Inc. (NECA), is eligible to participate. Participation is free of charge. Other parties, such as equipment manufacturers, may participate if they have solutions relevant to the SHAKEN framework available to test.
