Equipment including new telephone (4)

Ross

I believe the answer is:

ring

Here is my best explanation:

'telephone' is the definition.

('ring' can be a synonym of 'telephone')

'equipment including new' is the subsidiary indication.

'equipment' becomes 'rig' (rig is a kind of equipment**).

'including' means one lot of letters goes inside another.

'new' becomes 'n'.

'rig' enclosing 'n' is 'ring'.

(Other definitions for ring that I've seen before include "13's story of a 17", "Annulus", "Toll", "Band - call", "Circle, square for boxers", "Chime", "Circular band; call", "Frodo's burden (Tolkien)", "Surround; reverberate" and "Phone; circle".)
