Abstract (en)

[origin: WO9810603A2] The present invention relates to eliminating a call delay caused by a sleep mode in a paging system, which operates at a service centre and in which a pager can be set to a sleep mode, in which a power saving mode and a receiving mode alternate. The delay caused by the sleep mode is avoided by selecting a first pager set, to which at least one pager (8) to be selected later on belongs, on the basis of a received call according to a predefined criterion before analysing the contents of the call, and a signal for interrupting the sleep mode is sent to said first pager set. The selection criterion for the first pager set may be e.g. information on the number of subscriber A (1) stored in the system or a reference stored in the system and based on information on the caller's location to at least one pager, the sleep mode of which will be interrupted on the basis of a call from said location.
