the paging business is changing into the wireless data business

The “Paging” businessis changing into theWireless Data Business

The Internet is the greatest development for the dissemination of information to the masses since Johann Gutenberg invented the Printing Press


According to Life Magazine, the most significant event of the millennium is Johann Gutenberg’s printing of the Bible. On the eve of the twenty-first century, Life, in its “Top 100 Events of the Millennium,” recently featured those events that had the greatest impact on the course of history in the past 2,000 years.

  • Among Life’ Magazine’s “Top 100 Events” are:
          • Checking accounts (# 84)
          • The Icemaker (# 53)
          • The Telephone (# 20)
          • Henry Ford’s Model T (# 17)
          • America’s Declaration of Independence (# 8)
          • The discovery of the New World (# 2)
  • It was Gutenberg’s 1455 Bible, however, that Life considers the “most far-reaching” of all the technological achievements of the millennium. According to Life, it was that achievement, during a time when books were extremely expensive and in short supply, which “unleashed an information epidemic that rages to this day. In 1455, there were fewer than 30,000 books in the world. By 1500, there were over 9 million.”

The World Wide Web92 Million Surfers Strong

An eye-popping 92 million Americans and Canadians, or 40 percent of the population over the age of 16, report they use the Web, according to the 1999 CommerceNet Nielsen Media Research study. The report also shows growth in e-commerce: 55 million surfers shop online and more than half of them are buying.

Business WebExpenditures to Quintuple

Corporate investment in Web-enabling technology will continue to grow both in the U.S. and abroad. A new analysis from International Data Corp. shows domestic spending of $174 billion in 1999 will be outpaced by that of foreign firms, which is expected to hit $305 billion. By 2003, companies will spend $2.2 trillion worldwide.

Half of U.S. HomesNow Have PCs

Although analysts have declared the coming end to the PC era, new research from ZD InfoBeads shows another 6.4 million American households acquired PCs in the past year. That brings the PC-owning total to 52 million, or 50 percent of homes. Lower-income households accounted for the greatest percentage of new home PCs.

Miscellaneous Trivia

  • More data is sent over the paging infrastructure than by all other forms of mobile data communications combined.
  • Paging is one of the fastest-growing segments of the telecommunications industry.
  • One out of every seven people will carry a wireless device by the year 2000. This prediction is supported by the fact that today one in ten paging subscribers is under age 18.
  • By the year 2000, the number of subscribers is expected to grow to nearly 70 million.
  • Demand for alphanumeric messaging is growing at twice the rate of numeric paging. A similar trend is occurring in demand for increased coverage. Demand for wide area coverage is growing at twice the rate as local coverage.
  • One of the hottest emerging paging applications is the wireless delivery of electronic mail. Little wonder since nearly 75 percent of U.S. professionals now spend more than 20 percent of their time away from the office.
  • There are more than 600 paging companies operating in the United States; of that number, the top 30 companies constitute 95 percent of the business.
