They cannot sign the call because then the become the responsible party for the call before the FCC, and liable for any illegal call. Every owner of a PBX that sends calls to the network, except if you use a trunk for the likes of Vonage, needs to sign their calls. So if you send calls with any kind of dialer and use DIDs, real or "borrowed", you need to get the signature service urgently or your business will stop terminating calls. You cannot self-sign, you cannot get around it, the calls will either go to straight to voicemail or fail. Even worse, the carries wil play a fake voicemail and charge you a fee, something that some already a are doing when they detect robocallig.

I know it sounds arrogant but it is literally true. If you need to sign your calls to get through, with Asterisk, you need to connect to my service. I am an approved Service Provider from the FCC. If you keep thinking this is not happening, it is, and your business will disappear overnight.

Then you can apply the code I provided earlier and your calls with have a legal, binding signature. The carriers verify each signature and discard the ones that fail the cryptography test.

But the question is, are his statements correct that we need some
service -- not necessarily his -- to sign the call before sending it
to our normal carrier, or will the normal carrier -- whoever -- sign
the call if they know the number?

Your life is like a penny.  You're going to lose it.  The question is:
How do
you spend it?
