"Pager" in context

The pager, one of the precursors of the cellphone, is a simple telecommunications device that allowed individuals to receive short messages. It was first invented in 1949 and was commonly used through the 1990s. Pagers consisted of a small hand-held, beeper-like receiver that was used to transmit one-way text messages. Pagers operated via radio frequencies to communicate the transmission.

Although pagers were designed for communication between two people, they were mainly used in professional settings such as hospitals, factories, and public safety. Doctors and nurses were able to send simple messages quickly and efficiently without having to go to a desk or phone.
