Dallas-based AT&T will market to hospitals and other health organizations the Wallace Information Communicator Pager system of Wallace Wireless Inc., Toronto.

The pager is compatible with AT&T's Enterprise Paging service, and works on AT&T devices and Blackberry smart phones. Functions include text messages of up to 456 characters, two-way messaging and delivery receipts. On a Blackberry, a unique inbox distinguishes pager alerts from e-mail and text messages, and enables one-click response and call back. A distinct ring tone also can be set to ring until an alert is viewed, even if the phone is set to "quiet" or "vibrate," according to the vendors.

The paging system runs on the AT&T cellular network and Wi-Fi networks. More information is available at att.com/wicpager.
