Abstract

The presently available wristwatch pagers are designed to be worn on the user's wrist and optimized to receive their specific systems signalling events over a broad regional or city-wide coverage area. To provide these subscribers with acceptable paging service over these broad coverage areas these wristwatch pagers require large antenna structures, high capacity batteries and multifunctional displays that all contribute to growing the size of the product. We will identify a means that will allow a smaller wristwatch pager offering to be configured that is usable for on-site/campus-wide coverage areas. This is accomplished by modifying the product's design parameters and size so that it can fit more comfortably on the user's wrist. The need for a non-citywide operating environment will allow the end product to be smaller and still offer suitable service for those customer applications that are desiring small area coverage.
