Paging profiles and realms are used to set up an intercom system—like the one you remember from school where announcements were heard over the loud speakers. A paging profile is assigned to each device used on the intercom system and determines which devices can send (typically designated phones) or receive pages (typically dispersed speakers). A paging realm allows you to divide those devices up into different zones and target pages to specific areas in your organization (at least one realm is required).
