The Stanford University Medical Center uses two different paging systems, Stanford Bay Area Network (often referred to as SBAN or "Stanford network") and USA Mobility (often referred to as "long-range").
- Stanford Bay Area Network. Most of the Stanford medical community — and all code teams — use a Stanford-owned paging system for their paging service. The pagers themselves are owned by the subscribing department. Pages are sent over a frequency used only by the Stanford paging system.
- USA Mobility system (long-range). If you live or work in areas out of range of the Stanford system, you can rent Arch Wireless pagers from the Pager Administration office. Note: this service costs more and page transmission time can be longer. However, USA Mobility does provide a larger area in which you can receive pages. Keep in mind that Stanford has much less control over the reliability of the USA Mobility service.
- Stanford Bay Area Network: 50 miles
- USA Mobility: 300 miles
