Ytel Announces Its Full and Timely Compliance with the FCC’s STIR/SHAKEN Regulations

Ytel Announces Its Full and Timely Compliance with the FCC’s STIR/SHAKEN Regulations. Ytel has fully complied with a new program by the Federal Communications Commission called STIR/SHAKEN (Secure Telephony Identity Revisited / Secure Handling of Asserted Information Using Tokens), a set of technical standards that telecommunications carriers are required to adopt to help to prevent “spoofing” by robocallers and fraudsters.

Ytel, a leading Communications Platform-as-s-Service (CPaaS) software company that helps businesses engage their customers, prospects, employees and vendors using multi-channel communications consisting of voice, texts, email and other communications methods via a powerful API or seamlessly through low code Workflow software, announced its latest achievement in compliance.

Brian Keep, COO of Ytel adds, “The complexity of meeting the FCC’s STIR/SHAKEN new regulations was a massive initiative by Ytel and our team performed beautifully. To meet the June 30th deadline was a major accomplishment and we are monitoring the major carriers to follow suit, as well.”

Although service providers have had until June 30, 2021 to complete a successful deployment of STIR/SHAKEN technology, the Ytel team has worked diligently on it since early 2019. We were involved with the creation of the standard which positions Ytel to optimally help brands and consumers in the United States.

Now, Ytel is one of the first in the nation to comply with STIR/SHAKEN as it was implemented on the June 30, 2021 deadline. This is significant as some of the largest carriers in the nation were struggling to fully comply with the new regulations.
