Abstract

Ever try to page someone from your new two- way pager who is not on the same service provider as yourself7 It's quite diflicult and almost impossi- ble unless you happen to know the person's email address for his pager if that exists at all. Wouldn't it be nice to be able to send anyone a page from your two-way pager or for that matter any device that interfaces with a paging switch with only the per- son's pager number. The Paging Name Server (PNS) system provides the way to do it.
