Wholesale VoIP Compliance refers to the set of regulations and standards that govern the use of Wholesale VoIP services. Compliance is important to ensure that Wholesale VoIP providers operate in a legal and ethical manner and provide high-quality services to their customers. Some of the key compliance requirements for Wholesale VoIP providers include STIR/SHAKEN, RMD, FCC 499, and FRN.
STIR (Secure Telephony Identity Revisited) and SHAKEN (Signature-based Handling of Asserted information using toKENs) are industry standards designed to prevent the spoofing of caller IDs in phone calls. These standards require Wholesale VoIP providers to verify the identity of their customers and sign calls with digital certificates to ensure their authenticity.
RMD (Registration, Authorization, and Authentication Database) is a database used by the US Federal Communications Commission (FCC) to manage the registration of Wholesale VoIP providers. Wholesale VoIP providers must register with the RMD and provide accurate and up-to-date information about their operations.
FCC 499 is a regulatory requirement that requires Wholesale VoIP providers to contribute to the Universal Service Fund (USF). The USF is used to support affordable communications services for low-income households, schools, libraries, and rural healthcare providers.
FRN (FCC Registration Number) is a unique identifier assigned to Wholesale VoIP providers by the FCC. Wholesale VoIP providers must obtain an FRN and use it to identify themselves when filing reports or submitting regulatory filings.
Compliance with these regulations is essential for Wholesale VoIP providers to avoid legal and financial penalties and maintain their reputation in the industry. It’s important for Wholesale VoIP providers to stay up-to-date with the latest compliance requirements and work with experienced legal and regulatory professionals to ensure their operations are compliant
