**** Calling Party Verification - I like it :) *****
Customers who are interested in this protection, register and setup a list of trusted caller ids (friends/family).
They also select short passcode that will enable other (human) traffic to proceed.
2. Charities, various government agencies(fire/police/etc) will be in everyone's trusted party list (i.e. exempt from this additional check).
3. When a party not in trusted list calls a number that has opted for this feature, they will be routed to an announcement that indicates the passcode. They will then be required to dial in the passcode. If the call timesout or ends without success, then the caller will be charged a small fee (small enough not to cause impact to an accidental mis-dial, but will add up to large value for robocallers). (deterrant)
The small billing fee will help offset the cost of developing this software feature in call processing switches.
It is software based solution w/o requiring additonal hardware deployment.
