Paging Complements Familiar Cellular Networks

Paging is partially redundant with cellular mobile wireless networks, yet it has a number of advantages that cellular networks cannot emulate. Its extremely low power consumption for example makes paging ideal for integration in user devices that fulfil a different primary purpose. Paging is economical, so that the mass market entry threshold is demonstrably lower than for other mobile wireless technologies.
Paging networks are an indispensable complement to cellular mobile wireless networks, especially when it comes to very fast, reliable transmission of small amounts of data with nationwide coverage and high spectrum efficiency to a large number of receivers at undefined locations for nearly simultaneous reception. Furthermore, paging does not share the following drawbacks of GSM, UMTS and LTE networks:

  • Indoor network coverage problems
  • The special security risks of IP-based services
  • The need for largely independent redundant communication channels, particularly in industrialized countries
  • Prohibitively high power consumption for many applications.
