Abstract

Subscribers to a paging service may elect to identify specific CL1 (Caller Line ID) numbers and assign to those numbers a specific lkvel of paging priority. Thus pages received from one particular telephone number automatically receive a higher priority in the paging sys- tem while calls originating! from other telephone num- bers may receive a lower level of priority. Calls received from telephone numbers which have not been identi- tied by the subscriber will receive a default level of pag- ing priority.

Thus pages received from the "authorized" CL1 telephone numbers for this subscriber will be accepted by the paging system and all other pages received for this subscriber will be rejected.

  Additionally, the paging system administrator may elect to define specific CL1 telephone number as "nui- sance callers" and can define these CL1 teleph...
