Paging systems provide reliable information transfer that reaches many places that are not reachable by other types of mobile or satellite systems. Explained is how and why paging systems are transitioning from one-way systems to two-way systems.

Covered in this book are the key paging industry standards including as POCSAG, ERMES, FLEX, and REFLEX to standardize equipment and services. This has resulted in a dramatic reduction in equipment and usage costs for the customer and the availability of amazing new devices.

The paging industry continues to evolve with innovative technologies and services that provide for new communication applications. This book covers some of the near-term changes that will affect the paging industry.
