Paging systems need to be properly designed to get the optimal benefit with regard to cost and performance. In paging system design, one needs to understand the environment where the paging system will be deployed. A paging system designed for an office system may be very different from a paging system designed for a manufacturing floor. There are number of different parameters that need to be taken into consideration when designing paging systems. Some of the external parameters are ceiling height, floor area, background noise, operating temperatures etc.

Noisy environments such as warehouse spaces and manufacturing floors need different types of speakers compared to less noisy office or board rooms.It may be necessary to have attenuators in certain parts of the building such as in trading rooms and boardrooms to control paging sound levels.
It is also important to consider what type of paging amplifiers must be used in a given environment. Paging amplifiers deployed must be able to supply the high audible levels that may be required in certain situations such as in emergencies.
Poorly designed paging systems tend to have too many speakers attached to one cable run resulting in lower volume levels. Therefore it is necessary to properly calculate the number of speakers that can be attached to a single cable run by the paging system installers.
