Next Generation Interconnection Interoperability Forum
The NGIIF addresses next generation network interconnection and interoperability topics associated with emerging technologies. Specifically, it develops operational procedures that involve the network aspects of architecture, disaster preparedness, installation, maintenance, management, reliability, routing, security, and testing between network operators. In addition, the NGIIF addresses issues that impact the interconnection of existing and next generation networks and facilitate the transition to emerging technologies.
- NGIIF has published ATIS-0300116, Interoperability Standards between Next Generation Networks (NGN) for Signature-Based Handling of Asserted information Using Tokens (SHAKEN), which provides Next Generation Network (NGN) telephone service providers with a framework and guidance for interoperability as calls process through their networks implementing Signature-Based Handling of Asserted Information Using Tokens (SHAKEN) technologies to ensure the validation as well as the completion of legitimate calls and the mitigation of illegitimate spoofing of telephone identities.
- NGIIF members are committed to collaborate with the industry to successfully complete calls to all locations, including rural areas. Find more information in ATIS' rural call completion initiative or download the Intercarrier Call Completion/Call Termination Handbook.
