TWO NEW wall-mounted small switching systems are being introduced this year. The systems - the Minimaster 1 (1 + 6) and Minimaster 2 (1 + 5) - are aimed at small business customers but the choice of extension telephones will make the systems attractive to residential customers as well. As a first step into these markets, contracts have been placed with two manufacturers for the different versions of Minimaster. The systems are similar in design, comprising a mains-powered central control unit to which extensions are individually connected. Minimaster 1 is currently being trailed in Tunbridge Wells telephone area and Minimaster 2 is shortly to undergo trials in Southend area.
