Example of a paging system setup

    Below is an example of a paging setup for a school.

    Before you begin: This article assumes you've already set up your paging realms and profiles.
    About this task: Alpine School District is comprised of an Elementary School, Jr. High School, and High School. Each principal needs to broadcast announcements (pages) to the hallways, cafeteria, or classrooms by dialing the appropriate zone number from their phone. Complete the following for each school.

    Table 1. Diagram Key
    Icon Term Description
    Paging Realm Group of zones inside a single local area network (LAN)
    Zone Group of subscribing devices
    Paging Profile Defines which zones a device can send and/or receive pages from
    Transmit Device Device that sends pages
    Subscribe Device Device that receives pages, sometimes a speaker (IP Amplifier)
    1. Set the Paging Realm to the school's name.
    2. Assign the zones as follows:

      • Zone 01 = Hallways
      • Zone 02 = Cafeteria
      • Zone 03 = Classrooms

      Result: Multicast Paging Example Paging Realm=School Name

    3. Create a Paging Profile called Hallway Devices.
    4. Select the school name as the Paging Realm for that profile.
    5. Set the following permissions:
      Zone Setting
      01 Subscribe only
      02 No subscribe or transmit
      03 No subscribe or transmit

      Result: Multicast Paging Example Paging Profile=Hallway Devices

    6. Create a Paging Profile called Cafeteria Devices.
    7. Select the school name as the Paging Realm for that profile.
    8. Set the following permissions:
      Zone Setting
      01 No subscribe or transmit
      02 Subscribe only
      03 No subscribe or transmit

      Result: Multicast Paging Example Paging Profile = Cafeteria Devices

    9. Create a Paging Profile called Classroom Devices.
    10. Select the school name as the Paging Realm for that profile.
    11. Set the following permissions:
      Zone Setting
      01 No subscribe or transmit
      02 No subscribe or transmit
      03 Subscribe only

      Result: Multicast Paging Example Paging Profile=Classroom Devices

    12. Create a Paging Profile called Principal's Device.
    13. Select the school name as the Paging Realm for that profile.
    14. Set the following permissions:
      Zone Setting
      01 Transmit only
      02 Transmit only
      03 Transmit only

      Result: Multicast Paging Example Paging Profile=Principals Device

    What to do next: Each device used in multicast paging will need its respective paging profile assigned. Users that have the same paging permissions can share a single paging profile by assigning the that paging profile to each of their devices.
