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'.
