Digital Agent is one of a few elite providers offering this new telecommunication technology standard which was developed to stop robocalls and the spoofing of phone numbers.
ATLANTA — May 1, 2020 – Digital Agent has been approved as an Active Service Provider for the nation’s Calling Number Verification Service. STIR/SHAKEN is a protocol intended to combat caller ID spoofing (robocalls) on public telephone networks. It does this via signed certificates that say, “Yes, the call was indeed originated from the owner of this caller ID”. Only 14 providers have completed this implementation on their networks. Digital Agent is on this short list!

“As an early adopter of the STIR/SHAKEN framework, Digital Agent is committed to the fight against robocalls, spoofing and spam calls. The more telecoms take this seriously the better we can combat spammers,” says owner, Howard Hunter.
STIR stands for “Secure Telephony Identity Revisited” and SHAKEN for “Secure Handling of Asserted information using toKENs.” Together, these cutting edge protocols define how telephone service providers are to implement solutions for ensuring calling numbers are not spoofed.
These protocols use digital certificates to confirm the security of a phone call. Using techniques common in public key cryptography, phone service providers employ verified digital certificates to ensure parties are not receiving spoofed numbers.
Both the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) and the Canadian Radio-television and Telecommunications Commission (CRTC) have endorsed the STIR and SHAKEN protocols, but stress proper implementation.
Digital Agent offers the highest standards for every aspect of telecommunication technology. They have the experience and knowledge to manage required digital certificates and the public and private keys technology for call verification.
The company is different from most IT Managed Service Providers because it is a full-service provider encompassing phone service, business internet service, hardware, software, and complete helpdesks. Additionally, they provide custom solutions including VoIP Phones, SIP Trunks, PRIs, Faxing, and more.
Digital Agent offers the very best internet and phone services. By helping businesses determine their specific communication needs, they design the best networks to meet those needs. Beyond, design and implementation, their expert engineers monitor and train end-users and provide 24/7/365 support.
As a fully functioning Telecom provider, Digital Agent also ports numbers, something which only a handful of Atlanta companies process.
